• College and Financial Aid

    As with anything, persistence pays off. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again! Students are encouraged to keep pursuing options in life. When one door closes, another will open. There are thousands of dollars in scholarship monies that go unclaimed because no one applied. Remain diligent and don’t be afraid to try…you never know what you’ll accomplish!
