GTK12: College $ense - Gulf Coast Edition
Saturday, December 15, 2012 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM (CST)
Getting into, paying for, and surviving college.
SOME THINGS ARE JUST GOOD TO KNOW
This year, student loan debt hit one trillion dollars - more than American's owe in credit card debt. At Mississippi Center for Justice, we think that student loan debt is keeping the best and brightest from getting a fair start. That's why we are hosting GTK2012, and why we are inviting the high school seniors (and their parents) from your Boys and Girls Club to attend.
GTK2012 will take place at the Lyman Community Center in Gulfport on December 15th, 2012 from 10am to 12pm. There will panels of college students to discuss what it takes to make it in college, experts on student scholarships, grants, and loans, and giveaways.
