On Monday, Mr. Martin Sabo, an MTA parent, gave a lecture to the students regarding credit. He spoke about what a credit score is, and the importance of becoming familiar with its details in our high school years. There are various different aspects that contribute to an overall credit score, including how much debt one has and the length of one’s credit history. Mr. Sabo discussed the small things one can do to earn a good credit score, which is important later for taking out loans and mortgages, but more importantly for us, is essential when obtaining a credit card and student loans. Additionally, Mr. Sabo addressed the differences between credit and debit cards, and the pros and cons of both.

We would like to thank Rabbi Brownstein and the college guidance department for arranging these career guidance lectures, and Mr. Sabo for taking time out of his busy day to address the students.
