FRIDAY, JAN 13, 2017
Nearly $100 million in federal financial aid went unclaimed by 2013 and 2014 Tennessee high school graduates. With the upcoming deadline Jan. 17 for state scholarships, Leadership Memphis is working with current high school seniors to reduce that statistic. They are sponsoring two events, MLK Day of Service on Jan. 13 and FAFSA Goal Sunday on Jan. 15. On Jan. 13, teams will canvass neighborhoods targeting high school seniors to complete the FAFSA and high schools and organizations will host workshops. On Jan. 15, churches across Memphis and Shelby County will participate in FAFSA Goal Sunday to assist their graduating seniors with completing the FAFSA.
