A young friend of mine is currently in her senior year of college, where she is majoring in high school education. I guess you could say she was really “lucky” and came from a poor family. This meant that she qualified for a program through our state that provided free tuition, room and board, and money for textbooks and some incidental expenses for four years. Of course, there were stipulations to the program. She had to maintain a certain grade point average in high school and couldn’t have any run-ins with the law, such as alcohol or drugs. The program was also limited to state schools. But I fully realize (and I believe she does too) what an amazing opportunity this is for her to turn things around and get a great start in her adult life.
Congrats on Graduating… Now Comes the Hard Part
