If you post on Facebook or Twitter, it’s public information, he said.

“If it’s there, you might as well put it on the front page of the newspaper.”

Kobylowski is no stranger to making the news, whether it’s reporting on post-Sandy recovery and insurance claims or forecasting the state’s economy. 

His lessons on financial literacy were part of the high school’s observance of American Enterprise Day, which recognizes free enterprise and how it has contributed to our economy and nation. The event on Nov. 15 included speakers from the business world who gave informational and motivational speeches to aspiring students. 

“It is an amazing opportunity for young high school students to be introduced to the business world through passionate people with years of experience,” said Monica Cohen, supervisor of business education.

“Also, it is a great way to inspire students to enter the world of business as they leave high school and pursue college or work.”

Other speakers included engineer Hal Stern, retail executive Wendy Steinberg of Steve Madden; camp director Scott Lanzman of Gesher Summer Camp; fundraisers Len and Sandy Goodman of Cycle for Survival; and small business owner Jennifer Rosenblatt of the Philly Pretzel Factory.
