Students earn cash for class
TOWNSHEND- The senior class at Leland & Gray Union Middle and High School earned some extra cash to celebrate their high school graduation this year.
That’s because 78% of them completed a FAFSA, or free application for federal student aid, qualifying Leland & Gray for the FAFSA completion challenge, sponsored by the Vermont Student Assistance Corp. Every high school that had at least 70% of its seniors completing a FAFSA was entered into a drawing for $1,000 for a school-approved senior activity.
Leland & Gray increased its FAFSA completions by 12% this year, making it one of the 13 schools that topped 70% in completed FAFSAs.
There are financial resources available to help Vermonters cover the costs of their education. It begins with the FAFSA. For more information call (877) 253-6485.
