“Hi Monica, I wanted to give you an update. My college sophomore just won another scholarship from our community foundation. It was one that is for college students only so I had to make a note for when she was eligible (your recommendation). She has been able to get by on what we had saved for her, scholarships, and govt loans. so far she has not had to tap into private loans. What you teach really works and makes things much easier.
