Each Moore 4 More Inc. board member, have experienced the financial burdens of college. We understand how expensive college can be in today's society. The expenses of higher education can financially be overwhelming for students, as well as their loved ones, which ultimately can be the deciding factor if or when individuals continuously further their educational careers. Although Moore 4 More Inc. is unable to financially send every young student to college, through this scholarship platform we are taking the initiative to be apart of the of the solution by contributing to future generations.
Skills, Drills, & Dollar Bills offer the students’ and parents an opportunity to be educated about college financial responsibilities. This event includes guess speakers who will encourage the students to attempt budgeting on a college income, stimulate their financial decisions to investment in their future education, current college students will give their perspective and helpful tips about their college experiences, and encourage the understanding of financial aid. Scholarship recipients will be announced at this event.
