Tracy from Detroit, MI

Studying to be an LPN. I need help with my last bit of tuition to graduate!

I'm in school to be a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). I'm on track to graduate in December 2015 pending that I pay my last tuition balance of $700.


I am a 23 year-old single mother. I am currently in school at Detroit Business Institute in the Licensed Practical Nurse program. I am to graduate from this program December 4, 2015 pending that I get my balance of $700 paid. I was denied assistance from MiWorks and my hours at work have been cut as well.

My goals are to walk across the stage and graduate on this day and immediately further my education in the Registered Nurse program which should take me about 9 months to complete.

I need $700 to pay the remainder of my tuition balance so that I my graduate.

Meeting this need will help me because I will graduate from the Licensed Practical Nurse program and will continue on the Bachelors of Science and Nursing track. I have previous college credits therefore allowing me to finish my BSN in about 9 months. Accomplishing these goal will allow me to provide a life of self sufficiency for my family.

Thank you for helping Tracy fund this need.
