Chelsea's College Tuition
Organized by: Christina Palumbo
My name is Christina Palumbo. My granddaughter Chelsea went to Wake Forest University for 4 years. Her student loans for the 4 years are over $100,000.00. I wish I was rich enough to help her pay for it. She is planning on continuing her education at Wake Forest after she graduates this May w/the degree of Bachelor of Arts in English Honors with minors in Secondary Education, Psychology & Biology. She did almost get a full scholarship (short $6,000.00 per year) to continue her education at Wake Forest to earn a Master's Degree. She comes from a family that cannot help her pay her tuition as they are having a hard time helping her with other basic essentials. She works at the University print shop...where she started at minimum wage. She will continue working there this summer and I hope the remainder of her years at Wake Forest along with a 2nd part time job. She has been paying her own car payment for two years, and will have to now pay her own rent while in grad school. She works really hard and I would love to surprise her and let her know that there are others out there that would be willing to help her with her cause.
