The historic Rosenwald Building was built on the campus of Prentiss Institute in 1926 with funds from the Julius Rosenwald Rural School Building Program. The Prentiss Institute Board of Trustees completed restoration of the building in 2013. The Rosenwald Building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has been recognized as a historic landmark by the Mississippi Department of Archives and History.
“The Rosenwald Building, constructed in 1926 with the assistance of the Julius Rosenwald Fund, was built with some modifications using standard plan #6-A, which was distributed to Rosenwald schools and published in Community School Plans. These one-story, Hand T-shaped buildings, developed beginning in 1919 by the Rosenwald Fund in consultation with educator Fletcher B. Dresslar, incorporated new standards for natural lighting and ventilation and revolutionized rural school design. For the next three decades, these "alphabet plans" became the new standard for rural consolidated schools, which consolidated smaller one-room schools into larger centralized campuses that allowed the division of students by grades and expanded high school and vocational programs.” From US Dept of Interior National Register of Historic Places Registration Form
The Rosenwald Building serves as a hub for community activities and events and is available for a variety of activities including conferences, meetings, expos, banquets, receptions, reunions, performances, weddings, and more.

BE IN CHARGE OF YOUR MONEY!
It Is What You Keep That Matters!
This day-long Masterclass, “Be in Charge of Your Money,” is about exerting financial control considering our new normal. The Workshop is focused on techniques that enable moderate means households to identify new sources of savings and investment that they can use to begin building wealth for themselves and their families.
The past year revealed vulnerabilities that many of us already knew existed. This time was a gift for some - giving us a chance to reflect on the times in which we live and to recalibrate our priorities. One thing became crystal clear - that most of us work for money, rather than making money work for us.
This Workshop is designed to present new opportunities for building wealth. It is not what you make that matters, it is all about what you keep and how you invest these proceeds! This Masterclass is designed to help you gain knowledge and develop a game plan, starting today!
This one-day Masterclass is designed to help you make this your reality. We demonstrate how you can use your rent money to purchase property and build equity. We demonstrate how little understood rules of the U.S. tax code can be used to identify sources of savings and investment of which you may be unaware. We show you how even your bills can fuel savings and investment. We teach the basics of choosing investments. We provide coaching to get you started today.
This Course demonstrates practical strategies that help you understand:
When properly prepared, participants will gain both practical knowledge and a game plan.
We want to build confidence in the ability to attain financial goals.
We provide same-day group coaching to get you on your way.
Normally $495 per participant, this course will be offered at no cost to participants by R. Terese May, J.D., ChFC®, CEO, ZUWA MONEY, CORP.
"This is a noble calling. It is about making money a source of strength. When money is no longer an issue, many of our problems melt away. Financial resilience becomes our reality. Our money becomes a dear friend." ~R. Terese May
Community leaders across the country are calling financial literacy a "social justice tool" that can lead to greater financial stability for individuals, families, and communities. Let us know if you'd like to support this program at firstname.lastname@example.org.

R. Terese May is a highly experienced, credentialed financial advisor and attorney. She is the eldest of five children, born to a building trades family, from small-town America. She is first-generation, college-educated. Her growth was nurtured by a black working-class community that believed in its young people. She has been on the forefront of a lot of “firsts” in her lifetime. She wears every experience as a badge of honor for the benefit of those who desire to understand.
Ms. May is uniquely suited to the task of developing and delivering this life-changing Masterclass. When she began her financial advisory career twenty-plus years ago, she did not know a single wealthy person. Her colleagues would inquire as to how she was going to create a career as a financial professional without knowing any rich people. Not being one to let the fact of her circumstances stand in her way, Ms. May created her own unique brand of “wealthy” person. With a freshly minted Bachelor of Science degree in Finance, she set out to impress those to whom she did have access. She began her career with schoolteachers, college professors, and public employees: the people many of her colleagues thought unworthy. She knew that she had to remove the mystery out of money if she were to be successful. Practical education was the secret sauce that gave her clients the confidence to invest.
Ms. May has built portfolios that began with as little as $5,000 that are now worth millions of dollars. She has helped hundreds of San Francisco Bay Area families build wealth, purchase homes, and realize their dreams of financial independence. She now has clients from many walks of life, yet she remains committed to helping people exercise authority over their money for a better quality of life.
Ms. May is an experienced presenter who brings a certain gravitas to this subject matter. She has a winning personality. She genuinely cares about people being successful. She designed the ZUWA MONEY ecosystem to help each member discover her or his unique potential in order to start saving and investing money immediately. Ms. R. Terese May is an estate planning attorney and credentialed financial advisor who provides sudden wealth management services and fee-based financial advice. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (Finance) from California State University, East Bay, and a Juris Doctor from Loyola University Chicago School of Law. She is a licensed attorney with the California State Bar and a holder of the Charter Financial Consultant® (ChFC®) designation from the American College of Financial Services.
