Help Me Pay For College
Organized by: Adam Mayville
During my junior year of high school, my father lost his job of 16 years due to the recession. As the breadwinner of my family, our finances quickly spiraled downward. My father was forced to beg friends and relatives for money in order to support my mother, myself, and two brothers. My father went through long stretches of time, upwards of a year or more, without a job. Whenever he did get a job, the contract would be for a short period of time, not nearly long enough to stabilize our financial situation. As I neared high school graduation, my father told me that I may not be able to attend college, as we simply did not have the money. At the time, I was an A student with a 4.0 GPA and a 27 on the ACT. Our situation improved slightly, and I was able to attend college. Now, I am in my junior year, but my family is not out of the woods yet. I created this page to plead to anyone who will read this to help me graduate college. I am almost there, and I only need a small amount to finally reach my goal. All donations collected would go to paying various college fees and for books. Thank you, and God bless.
