Jo's Last Semester Grad School Fund

Hi Everyone!

My name is Joarlynn but everyone calls me Jo.   I start my last semester of Graduate School at MSU at the end of January.    I'm just a few months away from graduting with a  degree in Elementary Education (K-6th grade).  I'm so excited to finally start my career and love of teaching but unfortunately, I'm unable to pay for my last semester.  I've used up my savings to pay for School and my parents have used up the last of their savings, the little they had,  to pay for the Fall semester.  I've also maxed out in student loans so I haven't been able to get approval for more funds.  I'm just a semestser away!!

God placed this urgency and need in my heart to become an Elementary School Teacher and to work in an urban district where I can make a difference in the lives of children. This journey has been so rewarding and my faith has been tested time and time again but I know this is all just a part of His plan for me. So I refuse to throw in the towel now.  I have come too far! Teaching is His purpose for me. 

Graduate School is expensive but my faith tells me that nothing is impossible. Your wonderful donation will help cover the cost of tuition, insurance, supplies (books, etc).

I prayfully ask that you consider donating to my fund. Every little bit counts. God is bigger than any obstacle, I have to believe that.

"I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord. "Plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."- Jeremiah 29:11

Thank you so much for reading and for your consideration in donating to my fundraiser.
