3rd Annual Oconomowoc High School Reality Store


Next week, several loan officers will be joining students from Oconomowoc High School for their 3rd Annual Reality Store.

Oconomowoc High School Reality Store

The Reality Store is a financial simulation that tries to mirror real life scenarios to help students understand what they will experience in their lives in the future. Each student will choose an occupation with a salary, correlating student loan debt, have to pay taxes, buy housing and a vehicle. They will need to keep a check register as they buy their insurance and food by writing real checks for their purchases. Many area businesses, including Inlanta Mortgage, will help create a real life simulation.

Mortgage Needs

Oconomowoc students will need to make important housing decisions during this simulation. Loan officers Patty Napgezek, Jason Grubba and Steven March will be helping kids calculate each student’s debt-to-income ratios and help them determine if they have enough money left after college loans and auto payments to purchase a home.

Preparing Our Youth

Loan officer Patty Napgezek, a former Oconomowoc educator, is extremely honored to be part of the Reality Store program each year. She says the Reality Store really opens the kids eyes to what is in store for them.

“Any time that we can provide students the opportunity to reach beyond the curriculum and experience the “reality” of their future it is priceless,” said Patty Napgezek.
