POPLARVILLE – Pearl River Community College student Lela Flowers was not sure how she was going to pay for college this year if she had not won the 2015 PRCC Tuition Giveaway contest.
“Money these days is very hard to come by, and with a disabled father on dialysis and part-time working mother, who is the only person paying for my schooling, this tuition would not only be a miracle for us, but it’ll also help reach our family goal and make history,” said Flowers.
“I will be the first college graduate in my immediate family.”
