Attention Tennessee high school seniors, next Monday, August 18th, the Tennessee Promise scholarship application will be online. This is a last-dollar scholarship the covers all tuition and fees remaining after Pell and other scholarships to Tennessee community colleges or to a Tennessee College of Applied Technology. www.tnAchieves.org.
Over 30,000 students are expected to apply. A part of the Tennessee Promise program assigns each student with a trained mentor to help pave the way for success. Over 6,000 mentors will be needed. What could be more rewarding than increasing Tennessee’s competiveness with a workforce trained for today’s highly skilled jobs? Helping a local young person learn and succeed?
