Hartley's tuition at ClemsonLIFE

Help Hartley's dream come true! The video shows her excitement about being accepted to the ClemsonLIFE program. LIFE stands for Learning Is For Everyone. The ClemsonLIFE program at Clemson University is designed for students with intellectual disabilities who desire a postsecondary experience on a college campus. The mission of the ClemsonLIFE Program is to provide a coordinated course of study that includes career exploration and preparation along with self-awareness, discovery, and personal improvement through a framework of courses, job internships, and community participation.

The program costs about $39,000+ per year and we, as her parents, are unable to get loans to help her attend. We need to give ClemsonLIFE an answer before March 31, 2016! If we can just get enough for the first year by this deadline, we would be thrilled and very appreciative of your help.

We have exhausted our savings because of medical bills over the years. It is hard for us as her parents to ask for help, but this is the only way we can make it happen.

Here is a breakdown of the costs:
ClemsonLIFE Program Fees      
Operation Costs            $24,000
Student Fee                      $   3,100
Housing                              $   6,400
Academic Fee                  $   3,000
Meal Plan                          $    4,000

It's been awhile since we've posted an update. Last Saturday, Freedom Biker Church and The Rolling Saints MC hosted a Dream Ride for Hartley at Tilley Harley Davidson in Statesville. It was great to see so many come out to support Hartley in her second year in the ClemsonLIFE Program. We met some new friends and saw familiar faces from last year. Thank you for investing in Hartley's future!

We have been so humbled by the love and support that has been shown for Hartley over the past 9 months. We just made the payment for her nest semester at ClemsonLIFE. There is no way this could have been possible without so many of you believing and offering support. ClemsonLIFE is not eligible for student loans or other fund sources that typical college students have access to and there is no way that we could do this without those who invested in Hartley's future. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

ICYMI....we won $20,000 through the NC Education Lottery back in June. Thanks to many of you who voted and shared on fb to increase our chances of winning. Here is the video that the NC Lottery produced for the winners. We were one of ten winners!
