Although Jackson is the first person in his family to be on track to complete a four-year degree, he grew up with the expectation that college was in his future. He believes higher education will help him achieve his full potential. Jackson decided to take advantage of the A+ Scholarship to get him through his first two years of college at minimal cost. He chose his school based on its location, available financial aid, and degree program.
“I would say that today more than ever, college is important and completely possible. Through financial aid and scholarships it is possible for anyone who is willing to put in the work to go to school.”
