'Live From the Newsroom' talks student financial literacy

We're taking our live-stream Internet broadcast, 'Live From the Newsroom,' back on the road tonight when we tackle the issue of financial literacy among young people with the good folks at the Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union.

Financial literacy among young people is becoming a big issue.

The Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union has been pushing this issue for years, starting with the opening of several branches inside high schools, and staffed by students.

They also use the famous Berenstain Bears to spread the message of financial literacy among young people.

Tonight I will be joined by Rick Durante and Mike Magnavita, from the credit union, to talk about their work, and I'll also have two very special guests.

Lexi Galantino carries the No. 1 ranking in her class at Springfield High School. She also just happens to be an intern at the Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union's branch inside Springfield High as well as co-chairing the Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union's Youth Advisory Board. Lexi is this year's scholarship winner. She's headed to Tufts Univesity next year.

Also with is will be Marple Newtown School District Superintendent Dr. Merle Horowitz. She's been named the credit union's 2014 Financial Literacy Advocate, given to a leader in education each year who demonstrates strong support for financial literacy.

We'll also use the show to preview next week's big Partners in Learning Celebration dinner, featuring the awards for the All-Delco Hi-Q team as well as the Delaware County Excellence in Teaching Awards.

Each year we are honored to feature the All-Delco Hi-Q team. Much as we do for each high school sport, each year we name an All-Delco team tied to the nation's oldest academic quiz competition. One team member is selected from each competing school.

Make sure you look for complete write-ups on the All-Delco Hi-Q team this Sunday in the Daily Times. On Monday we will do likewise with this year's winners of the Excellence in Teaching Awards.

Make sure you tune in to DelcoTimes.com tonight at 7 for a very special 'Live From the Newsroom' on financial literacy among young people.
