More than 40 years ago, a young adult with very modest family means began an uncertain journey in higher education. It was fraught with many pitfalls and unknowns because this aspiring collegian was one of 13 children and had to finance his college education on his own through a mixture of loans, grants, scholarships and institutional financial aid awards.
Over his four years in college, this engineering major secured National Direct Student Loans, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants, Basic Educational Opportunity Grants, Ohio Instructional Grants, institutional grants and more, while also earning extra money in the work-study program on campus.
