Higher Education

The 2020-2021 Academic school year is scheduled to be my final year of education and training to receive certification in Elementary Education.  My classification is that of Senior at Miles College, Fairfield, Alabama.  I am maintaining a 4.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale. I am on the President's List and a member of the Miles College Choir, and  I serve as a staff member for the American Legion Alabama Boys State.  Graduation has been scheduled for May 2021.

I have just been told by the financial aid that all of my financial assistance has been exhausted.  Being unable to secure any personal loans, as a last effort to complete this degree (B. S. Elementary Education) I am exploring all sources of funding.

My expenses for the year would be tuition, books and supplies.  I am also seeking employment to help defray the cost of expenses.  I have worked since I was 16 in a local supermartket and as a volunteer then employee for McWane Science Center Museum in Birmingham, Alabama. I held both jobs simultaneously for 2 years.

Summer tuition ($4032) is due now, with the that for the fall semester ($8,496) due at the beginning of that semester and ($8,496) at the beginning of the Spring semester which would be my practicum.  All other expenses are books and supplies.

All funds will go directly to Miles College.

Any contribution would be so appreciated and forever remembered.  I want to thank you in advance and personally.
