From the Book: The Refractive Thinker®: Vol. I: An Anthology of Higher Learning

Through the years, educators, lawmakers, politicians, community leaders, business owners, and taxpayers have contributed with ideas, funding, and a kind heart to ensure continued access to education. The availability of student financial aid programs in the form of federal, state, institutional, and private sources of student financial aid have contributed to transforming these dreams into reality.
