tnACHIEVES Student Services – $5,000
tnAchieves is a college access and success program with the mission of increasing higher education opportunities for Tennessee high school students by acting as the partnering organization to Governor Haslam’s TN Promise scholarship; a program that provides students with last-dollar scholarships and mentor guidance. The objective of tnAchieves is to increase the number of students pursuing a post-secondary degree after high school, increase the number of students earning a post-secondary credential once they enroll in a post-secondary institution and, ultimately, make Tennessee and its communities a better place to live by increasing our state’s ability to recruit business and industry.
“tnAchieves is about making sure the student understands that you ARE college material, you CAN do this, you have a support system, let’s do it together”
Krissy DeAlejandro, Executive Director
