Hudson – Kim Niemi, of Avidia Bank, discusses the importance of a good credit score with Lorrayne Agostinho and Thaissa Campelo during the annual Reality Fair, held for sophomores at Hudson High School. After choosing a career and determining a salary, the students learned how to budget their money from representatives of local businesses. Funds available depended on the students’ luck when they took two mandatory spins at the Wheel of Fortune, with options ranging from a lottery win to a fine for a speeding ticket.
