Pinson Valley High receives “Cash For College Alabama campaign” grant

From The Trussville Tribune staff reports

PINSON — Pinson Valley High School will receive a grant from Alabama Possible, a nonprofit organization that promotes “Cash For Alabama campaign,” which promotes completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA.

According to a statement by Alabama Possible, PVHS is ranked among the highest in improvement rates in promoting “college-going culture” including completing the FAFSA. Alabama has been rated in the top four states making improvements in student aid.

“We are thrilled to see that Alabama is ranked at the near top of the list nationally for improvement in FAFSA completion,” said Alabama Possible’s executive director, Kristina Scott. “Too often, we focus on Alabama’s low rankings, so we’re ready to celebrate this win. We’re also ready to celebrate Pinson Valley High School and the students who are making it happen. Many people across the state realized we left $45.3 million in college aid on the table last year, so it’s exciting to see students taking steps to avoid that same issue in 2018.” 

PVHS will be presented the grant at a celebration of the Cash for College campaign on June 20 at Lawson State Community College in Birmingham.
