Special guest Jack Zegeer, a financial aid guru at NOVA Community College, joins hosts Mike McMillon and Tatyana Schum in studio to highlight how NOVA can help students with obstacles that might otherwise derail their paths to success.
Topics include Emergency Grants, Campus Food Pantries, NOVA's Financial Stability Program, and the Single Stop program - a single point of access for students to find out if they qualify for specific local, State, and Federal resources outside of NOVA. Zegeer stresses the importance of community resources and encourages students in particular to leave fear or "pride" aside and ask for help.
