Netspend awarded Elease toward her Bachelor’s of Science in Communication.

My long term goals are to obtain my Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and to pursue my Master’s Degree immediately after. These degrees will help me better serve my community, and give me the education and experience needed to make a difference. I’m from a small town in Arkansas where few people of color receive degrees. The mentoring program that I am developing allows children to see that they can achieve dreams and goals regardless of any situation or obstacles. The Netspend scholarship would help me offset the cost of school and other related expenses, like a laptop and internet service.
