During the College Financial Aid Day at the school on September 29th, Glen Mills students and parents had the opportunity to learn about some ways to make higher education more affordable.
Fran McKeown from the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) offered up some savvy financial advice to students and their parents as they begin the form filling process. She encouraged students to work hard academically as better grades can often equal more financial aid.
Joe Forward and Al Minker from the Glen Mills Schools Education Department were also on hand at the annual event to talk about other sources of assistance. Minker talked about the process of filling out the FAFSA form while Forwood wants the students to strive for the best grades possible and apply for the Glen Mills Scholarship.
Glen Mills student and campus executive Michael Beverly found the seminar very helpful.
“More than anything, this encourages us to get the process started because there is money out there to help,” Beverly said.
