So I’ve been dying to finish my degree but with three small children and a limited budget, it just hasn’t been in the financial cards for me. Between my husband and I, we have enough student loan debit to cripple an elephant.
Despite all this, I’ve decided to make lemonade out of lemons and find a way to finish my degree. I discovered that Tennessee has stepped up to the plate in a big way by helping its adult population finish their degrees.
“Tennessee Reconnect is Governor Bill Haslam’s initiative to help more of our state’s adults enter higher education to gain new skills, advance in the workplace, and fulfill lifelong dreams of completing a degree or credential.”
I’m so excited to see how Tennessee Reconnect impacts the state’s workforce as a whole but it absolutely elates me to think of what it will do for me!
Over the past few days, I’ve applied to a couple of different institutions and I’ve scheduled an appointment with a Tennessee Reconnect advisor. I’ll keep everyone updated on my progress!
