K.L.’s Story

My husband is a commission-only car salesman. Hours were cut plus inventory is short due to factories having been closed for so long. His dealership has only 20% of the inventory they normally do. Buyers are opting to wait until there are more cars to choose from and thus delaying making any purchases. Our daughter is a rising junior in a private school. Our financial situation is dire. We just borrowed from his 401k retirement plan to keep afloat. The last thing we want to do is take our daughter out of her school. The SAFE Grant would help us keep her in there. She is a high achiever and holds a 4.5 GPA. She has big plans to attend Clemson. We’d hate to have to alter her path to her dream after all she’s done to get herself to where she is academically.
