College Goal Sunday Scores in Central Falls



Sixty-eight RI families gathered at Central Falls High School for College Goal Sunday, January 25, to get their college financial aid applications submitted! Many volunteers from The College Crusade, the RI Student Loan Authority, and the RI Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators were on hand to help parents and students fill out their FAFSAs. Courtney McEntee, a former College Crusade Advisor who now works as a financial aid counselor for The Met and the College Planning Center of Rhode Island, was also present to lend her expertise.

Linda Norton, associate director of financial aid for Bryant University, got the event started by leading the whole group in a line-by-line process of filling out the paper FAFSA. Students then moved to upstairs to the high school’s computer lab and library to input their information and file their FAFSAs electronically.

Many thanks to our high school manager, Maria Carvalho, who was site coordinator for College Goal Sunday in Central Falls. Thanks also to Jessica Rivera, our Advisor at Central Falls High School, and to Evelyn Jones, vice principal. Shirley Wright, our scholarship administrator, Gina DiMartino, and all our high school Advisors also helped make the event a success.

Crusaders who missed College Goal Sunday have five more opportunities to get help with their FAFSA. See this post about our upcoming FAFSA Nights in January and February.
