GPS: Conquering the Challenges of College Costs

Frank Palmasani, creator of the financial fit online program, will highlight 30 steps you can take to save thousands of dollars in college costs and pay for college without excessive debt. This seminar will combine the latest information about scholarships, financial aid, student loans and the college search process when financial issues are a factor.

Seniors and their parents and guardians are reminded that the new federal suggested filing deadline for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) has been moved up to late October. This date change will help families determine the best financial package for their students. In most cases families will now file their FAFSA just after their student applies to their colleges, three months earlier than previous years

The Glenbard Parent Series: (GPS) Navigating Healthy Families will present Jacy Good and Steve Johnson at a program entitled Hang Up and Drive on Thursday, Sept. 21 at 7p.m. at Glenbard North, 990 Kuhn Rd. in Carol Stream.

May 18, 2008 was meant to be one of the best days of Jacy Good’s life. It was the day of her college graduation,when suddenly everything changed. A young man distracted by his mobile phone conversation drove through a red light, collided with an 18-wheeler which hit Jacy’s car head-on. Jacy’s parents were killed instantly and Jacy was left with a permanent brain injury and partial paralysis. Determined to use her family’s tragedy to change minds, behaviors and laws, Jacy’s advocacy for cell-free roads brought her to the Oprah Winfey Show, and the United Nations. Students and community members are encouraged to attend this special event to learn the frightening facts and help eradicate an epidemic that shatters thousands of lives every year – Hang Up And Drive.
