Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority
Contest winner announced
FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 28, 2012) — The winner of the first iPad giveaway by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA) is Louisville resident Chandra Weathers. The contest was open to Kentucky residents who “liked” the KHEAA Facebook page, online at www.facebook.com/KHEAA, and answered a question about college.
KHEAA outreach counselors presented Weathers with the iPad at the Southwest Regional Library in Jefferson County on June 13, 2012.
She offered some advice to those wanting to pursue college.
“I would advise someone interested in going to college to keep an open mind and set goals for themselves,” Weathers said. “It is a tough transition from home to newfound freedom on a college campus. Enjoy the experience but time management is a big piece.”
KHEAA plans to hold more iPad giveaways during the upcoming fiscal year.
