All six of Brandon Lloyd's siblings have college degrees. Buy cheap epivir hbv online And he would have had one too -- if he didn't leave school early to play in the National Football League.

"I never saw sports as my future, buy cheap epivir hbv online" Lloyd told a room of Lowell High School students. Buy cheap epivir hbv online "I looked at it as a means to an end. Buy cheap epivir hbv online I knew I wanted a major institutional degree in broadcast journalism."

Buy cheap epivir hbv online Jeanne D'Arc Credit Union, buy cheap epivir hbv online along with the National Financial Educators Council, buy cheap epivir hbv online sponsored Lloyd's visit as part of its MoneyStrong program, buy cheap epivir hbv online which educates teens to be financially responsible through talks, buy cheap epivir hbv online workshops and first-loan programs.

"The program is such a great education for kids coming out of school or going into college to learn about saving, buy cheap epivir hbv online" said Michelle Silveira, buy cheap epivir hbv online senior vice president at Jeanne D'Arc. Buy cheap epivir hbv online "Even if they're saving as little as $10, buy cheap epivir hbv online that's still making a difference."

Members of Jeanne D'Arc's financial-education department put on a presentation for about 100 Lowell High seniors, buy cheap epivir hbv online covering everything from the mysterious fine print of credit-card agreements to the financial implications of choosing the right college. Buy cheap epivir hbv online The students watched video clips of celebrities such as John Salley, buy cheap epivir hbv online Christian Hosoi and Wilmer Valderrama, buy cheap epivir hbv online each of whom talked about the tough path he faced in achieving his dream.

But the real star of the show was Lloyd, buy cheap epivir hbv online who spoke to thestudents for about 20 minutes about how hard work can lead to financial success. Buy cheap epivir hbv online He told of his hardworking hometown of Blue Springs, buy cheap epivir hbv online Mo., buy cheap epivir hbv online the type of place where the varsity quarterback was also the valedictorian and got a scholarship to Dartmouth. Buy cheap epivir hbv online He recalled a moment in his youth when he asked his parents to buy him a video-game system, buy cheap epivir hbv online which he soon learned he would have to buy himself after mowing more than a couple of lawns.

"Once you view money as something that requires labor, buy cheap epivir hbv online youhave more respect for it, buy cheap epivir hbv online" said Lloyd.

Wanting to get a degree just like the rest of his family, buy cheap epivir hbv online each of whom was able to afford college through academic scholarships, buy cheap epivir hbv online athletic scholarships or even enlistment in the Air Force, buy cheap epivir hbv online Lloyd parlayed his considerable athletic ability (and dinner-plate-sized hands) into a football scholarship at the University of Illinois.

"When you have that discipline and focus, buy cheap epivir hbv online that's what helps you stay on course with all the distractions that high school and college throw you, buy cheap epivir hbv online" said Lloyd.

Lloyd took a tour of Lowell High when he arrived at about 9 a.m. Buy cheap epivir hbv online After the presentation, buy cheap epivir hbv online he sat in on a business class and ate lunch in the school restaurant. Buy cheap epivir hbv online Though he encountered many Patriots fans, buy cheap epivir hbv online Lloyd feels like his life lessons are universal and that as long as somebody learns a thing or two, buy cheap epivir hbv online he's happy.

"I think that it doesn't matter how much money that (the students) will have in their future, buy cheap epivir hbv online because each of them, buy cheap epivir hbv online in some way, buy cheap epivir hbv online will have money in their future, buy cheap epivir hbv online" said Lloyd. Buy cheap epivir hbv online "But all it takes is one kid. Buy cheap epivir hbv online I come from a family of educators, buy cheap epivir hbv online and one thing my dad would always say is that he'd teach all these years for one student to get something out of it."
