Cassandra's Climb for College
Organized by: Cassandra Lockridge
EVENT DATE Nov 01, 2014
My name is Cassandra Lockridge and I would love your help raising the remaining money I need to pay for tuition at Oglethorpe University in Atlanta, GA. I graduated from Whites Creek High School in Nashville, TN in 2013. I spent my first year at Hanover College in Hanover, Indiana and completed my first year of college with over a 3.0 GPA. While at Hanover, I was admitted to the Business Honors Scholars Program and involved in the Multicultural Club, Math Club,Feminist Club, a collegiate christian youth group and many other communitity service activities.Ultimately, I decided Hanover wasn’t the right place for me to pursue my academic goals and I found a major that more aligned with my interests at Oglethorpe University.While I attend Oglethorpe, I plan on majoring in Business Adminstration while minoring in Non-profit management.I’ve applied for scholarships and taken out loans, but I still have a gap in what I can't pay. Consequently, I have been trying my hardest to find alternate ways to pay this money off by November 1st. I have been fortunate to make and save money through my summer internship at Hospital Corporation of America, but it is not enough to pay the remaining amount of $2,000 that I owe for the year. I will be working during the school year to also pay off expenses, but I would prefer to be able to prioritize my academics and balance my work schedule. Whatever you give will be planted in good ground, because I will be able to one day help more people in the future with their business and financial skills.Thank you so much for your support!
