All six of Brandon Lloyd's siblings have college degrees. Buy discount quick relief cats 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 discount quick relief cats online" Lloyd told a room of Lowell High School students. Buy discount quick relief cats online "I looked at it as a means to an end. Buy discount quick relief cats online I knew I wanted a major institutional degree in broadcast journalism."

It was this drive for success that the Patriots wide receiver stressed in his visit to Lowell High on Tuesday morning. Buy discount quick relief cats online Jeanne D'Arc Credit Union, buy discount quick relief cats online along with the National Financial Educators Council, buy discount quick relief cats online sponsored Lloyd's visit as part of its MoneyStrong program, buy discount quick relief cats online which educates teens to be financially responsible through talks, buy discount quick relief cats 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 discount quick relief cats online" said Michelle Silveira, buy discount quick relief cats online senior vice president at Jeanne D'Arc. Buy discount quick relief cats online "Even if they're saving as little as $10, buy discount quick relief cats 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 discount quick relief cats online covering everything from the mysterious fine print of credit-card agreements to the financial implications of choosing the right college. Buy discount quick relief cats online The students watched video clips of celebrities such as John Salley, buy discount quick relief cats online Christian Hosoi and Wilmer Valderrama, buy discount quick relief cats 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 discount quick relief cats online who spoke to thestudents for about 20 minutes about how hard work can lead to financial success. Buy discount quick relief cats online He told of his hardworking hometown of Blue Springs, buy discount quick relief cats online Mo., buy discount quick relief cats online the type of place where the varsity quarterback was also the valedictorian and got a scholarship to Dartmouth. Buy discount quick relief cats online He recalled a moment in his youth when he asked his parents to buy him a video-game system, buy discount quick relief cats 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 discount quick relief cats online youhave more respect for it, buy discount quick relief cats online" said Lloyd.

Wanting to get a degree just like the rest of his family, buy discount quick relief cats online each of whom was able to afford college through academic scholarships, buy discount quick relief cats online athletic scholarships or even enlistment in the Air Force, buy discount quick relief cats 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 discount quick relief cats online that's what helps you stay on course with all the distractions that high school and college throw you, buy discount quick relief cats online" said Lloyd.

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

"I think that it doesn't matter how much money that (the students) will have in their future, buy discount quick relief cats online because each of them, buy discount quick relief cats online in some way, buy discount quick relief cats online will have money in their future, buy discount quick relief cats online" said Lloyd. Buy discount quick relief cats online "But all it takes is one kid. Buy discount quick relief cats online I come from a family of educators, buy discount quick relief cats 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."
