Oct 15, 2012 -
On Saturday, November 3rd at 2:00 p.m., in conjunction with the Sallie Mae Fund, U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) 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 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Conference Room at Collin College’s Preston Ridge Campus located at 9700 Wade Boulevard in Frisco. 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.
“In this down economy, families across the country have tightened their family’s budget due to financial fears. Many parents of college bound students, along with the students, worry how they will pay for everything in pursuit of a college education. This Paying for College seminar should help a lot of folks learn more about their financial options,” said Johnson.
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.
