On Saturday, January 9th at 10 a.m. in Plano, U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (3rd Dist.-Texas) and The Sallie Mae Fund will hold a free workshop on saving, planning and paying for college. The event coincides with the release of the 2010-2011 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. One participant at the seminar will leave with a $500 scholarship via random drawing. The informational program is free and open to the public.
The Saving, Planning and Paying for College program is sponsored by The Sallie Mae Fund, a charitable organization sponsored by Sallie Mae. A Sallie Mae Fund expert will lead the presentation for parents and teens and then answer questions. Families will learn about saving, planning and paying for college and will receive free resources to guide them through the process.
The seminar will run from 10:00am to 11:30am in the Conference Center at the Collin College Spring Creek Campus, located at 2800 Spring Creek Parkway in Plano.
To attend the workshop, please RSVP to The Sallie Mae Fund online, as seating is limited. To register online, simply go to www.salliemaefund.org.
“Now more than ever, it is critical for kids and parents to learn about the ways they can pay for college. I hope that the Saving, Planning and Paying for College seminar helps a lot of folks better understand their financial options and plan for the future with college in mind,” said Johnson. Those with questions about the event should contact Johnson’s office at 972-470-0892.
