When I told Will that people were looking for a go fund me page for him, this was his response:
"I am for a loss of words, the amount of support and the positive feedback I’ve received from the Staples community is greatly appreciated and inspires me to continue on this journey.
The fact that you and others are willing to help me with my tuition is an honor and just an example of the generosity from the community to help others. At the moment I have been able to fund my first semester through unsubsidized loans and a scholarship I was awarded from NCC, but it won’t cover next semester. In all honesty any amount that is given is substantial and will be much appreciated. "
Will is a 30 year old Full time Bilingual/Education Major college student at Southern Connecticut Community College. He also work full time at Staples High School in Westport, CT as a Custodian. He started in 2013 and has since become an executive board member of the Custodial Union Group. His dream is to become a Spanish Teacher either in an elementary or a high school setting. He aspires to one day find himself in school administration.
Will already has $6000 in loans and will have at least another $22,000 in tuition costs remaining before he is done.
