In case you missed it (Nov. 2018), Jets linebacker Brandon Copeland is going back to school, just not as a student. The 27-year-old plans to teach a financial literacy course at his alma mater, the University of Pennsylvania.
The class Copeland will teach is called “Inequity and Empowerment: Urban Financial Literacy” and he will teach it alongside Brian Peterson, who has a doctorate in education. Brandon apparently practices what he preaches. There are reports Brandon saves 90% of his income.
Now we know Brandon’s income – as an NFL player – is way above the US average (and then some). Regardless, his desire to share thoughts on financial literacy and teach soon to be graduates is awesome. He’s giving back in his way – one that can be useful for UPenn students or anybody.
Just another good news story from H(e)LP. Proudly serving 17,000 clients over seven years.
