College Ready: Academically and Financially!
On behalf of all high schools involved, we want to thank everyone from the Hermitage and Nashville Deloitte offices who volunteered at the High School FAFSA Drives this month. Thanks to you and all of the FAFSA volunteers from Deloitte, they have reached two MNPS-FAFSA milestones on January 17, 2013.
Milestone #1—100 plus families in one night – On Thursday night January 17, Deloitte provided assistance to 106 families at Antioch . This is the result of their hard work and a three year partnership with Antioch High School. The work with Antioch has included over 100 volunteers assisting with Job Shadow Days, the Be the First Campaign, the JA Company Program, along with many other efforts. Special thanks to Debbie Banks, Chris Ownby and Mike Woods for leading the first two years of this partnership and Betsy Oleksa , James Lane, Melissa Clemons and Mike Woods for their leadership in year three.
Milestone #2—Over 500 families impacted – On January 17, 2013 Deloitte provided assistance to the 500th FAFSA family! They ended the night with a three year total of 585 families served from their FAFSA Drives at McGavock High School, Antioch High School and Overton High School. This clearly puts them in a great position to reach the 600th family milestone at the Overton drive on January 24. .
These numbers are incredible, but it is really about the individual families they have helped. Over the past three years, they have helped individual students on their pathway to college and made a meaningful and long-term impact on these students and their families. Thank you Deloitte for all you do!
