Morgan's college tuition

More Info

Hello, I have a daughter, Morgan, a senior in high school at St. Clair Co High School in Odenville, AL. Morgan is an A-B student and for a while, had her sights/hopes set on attending college to earn a Bachelor’s in Science- Elementary Education…then she discovered how much it would cost to further her education. She’s got more than one university offer of invitation to be part of their academic programs due to her attendance and grade upkeep throughout her school years. Morgan, as well as myself, has had some major setbacks thrown at us, as we’ve had to lay my 1st born, her older brother, to rest this past December and to say we’ve been struggling would be an understatement. Morgan works every day after school at a local quick -serve restaurant and does so on her own accord. She has recently paid for her own cap and gown for graduation this year and she’s also assured herself that she is will put herself through college on her after school income alone. Her vision of becoming an elementary educator was replaced with reality (costs) and she then said she’d consider a possible nursing position. Again, due to costs, her vision became another harsh reality as her hopes of educating, dwindled to her simply coming to terms with  studying to become an EMT at a local community college. It breaks my heart to see that she still carries a light within herself when she states that “at least she’ll still get to help others” but knowing that she’s merely settling for what’s affordable rather than what she dreams of and knows she’s capable of. I’m doing all that I can to see that Morgan will not have to face the hardships and burdens that accompany the costs of furthering education alone…but I am falling a bit short due to specific circumstances. I’m asking for any/all help, suggestions or advice, one could possibly offer to help in any way possible. Even if it is simply a prayer. Many thanks and God Bless.
