One of the greatest gifts my parents ever gave me, was the gift of a college education. Growing up my parents always talked about how a college education can open up doors for you and help make your goals & dreams come true. I remember hearing how important college is repeatedly from my parents through the years. My parents would say “there is nothing more important than a college education and doing well in school to get to college.” College was always this dreamy, wonderland, full of incredible opportunities that would come up in family conversations. Both my parent would talk to us about how they wished they went to college.
I was the first person in my family to graduate from a four- year university. Truly blessed to walk away from an undergraduate education, debt free, and with no student loans to repay. It was the best gift that my parents could have given to me. I never realized how amazing that gift was till I graduated college debt free and able to start my career without worrying about paying back student loans. The gift of education is one of the greatest presents I have ever received. It is a gift that keeps giving in more ways than one. It is a gift that I want to give my son and for him to give his kids one day.
This holiday season give the gift of education. It’s a gift that doesn’t only have to come from parents. Grandparent, aunts, uncles, whoever can give the gift of knowledge. Florida Prepaid College Board has created prepaid plans to fit everyone’s budget. The 1-Year Florida University Plan allows multiple purchasers to buy a plan for the same child. So different family members can help pay for your child’s higher education by purchasing a one year, or 30 credit hours, at a time according to their budget and timeline. The 1-Year Florida University Plan is “stackable” or allows multiple family members to contribute to paying for a child’s education. For example, Mom and dad can buy one year, grandparents can buy another, aunt and uncle can buy a third, grandmother can buy another, and then a child has tuition at a 4-year university paid for without the parents or one family member taking on the entire burden.
Give the gift of education this season and check out more of the Florida Prepaid Plans.
