Oct 17, 2011 -
On Saturday, October 22 at 3:00 p.m., in conjunction with the University of Texas at Dallas (UT Dallas) and the Sallie Mae Fund, U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (3rd Dist.-Texas) will hold a free workshop on saving, planning and paying for college. 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 Sallie Mae Fund expert will lead the presentation for parents, students and counselors 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 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the Clark Center at the UT Dallas Campus, located at 800 W. Campbell Road in Richardson. One eligible high school senior at the seminar will leave with a $500 scholarship via random drawing courtesy of the Sallie Mae Fund. The student or parent of the student must be present to win.
“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 Workshop helps folks better understand their financial options and plan for the future with college in mind,” said Johnson.
Representatives from seven Texas higher education schools will be in attendance to provide financial aid information and other assistance. These schools include Collin College, Southern Methodist University, Texas A&M University, Texas Women’s University, The University of North Texas, The University of Texas at Dallas and The University of Texas at Austin.
Johnson represents portions of Dallas and Collin Counties. To learn more about this event, contact the Congressman’s office in Richardson at 972-470-0892.
