What an inspiring story with Felecia Hatcher. Wow. Even though her GPA never touched a 3.0 in high school she was able to win over $130,000 in scholarships and grants. “Whether you have a 2.0 or a 5.0, you can get creative with your limited resources, get creative with your approach, and get the scholarship committees excited about what you’re doing,” describes Hatcher who went from a C student to a White House Award winning CEO.
Your student can do it too!
Thankfully, Felecia stops by our show today to tell us what she did to take control of her future during the beginning of her senior year of high school. Your child can enjoy this same success if they work hard at the smart things shared here today. Senior year is the biggest opportunity for scholarship and grant money, so don’t leave any on the table!
