Leadership Roseville Program Educates Local Students
SHARE with Friend
How to pay for college or housing are critical life skills that many high school students never learn in school.
But investment adviser Nic Delyon will take what many overlook as the focus of his presentation Friday, April 26, at Adelante High School in Roseville.
"Someone needs to have the discussion with them," says Delyon, a partner in Delyon Wealth Management in Rocklin. "Not enough high school classes are on topics such as these."
In fact, Nic, a Rocklin High School graduate, says he knew how to balance a checkbook in high school but little about paying for college or housing. So, he definitely feels a 45-minute presentation will go a long way to help students. "It needs to be a bigger emphasis in high school," says Nic, who attended the University of San Francisco, where he played college baseball. "They never taught us anything about this (in high school).
Delyon's presentation is part of Leadership Roseville and is during Financial Literacy Month. He will also discuss other options for students, including technical and trade school, especially since many offer a much-quicker road to a profession than the traditional four-year college.
"Not every student is going to go to college," Nic says. "Hopefully, I can teach them how to be financially accountable for a lifetime."
