New England Patriots wide receiver Brandon Lloyd visited Lowell High School to speak with students about the importance of financial planning. His visit was sponsored by National Financial Educators Council, Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union and Yahoo, which sent a camera crew to film his visit (it should be on the web in a couple of weeks). By all accounts, Lloyd was a wonderful guest, totally focused on the students, especially those who gave him a tour of the school. Jen Myers has an account of the visit plus an excellent slide show on her Room 50 blog (below I’ve linked to one of her photos):
Lloyd’s visit created a buzz on the local Twitter universe. Here’s a sampling of the Tweets that were made during his visit:
