One lucky Carroll parent is among the 30 selected to receive $250 in a college savings deposit for their child’s post-secondary education. Stacey Nepple was one of those randomly selected from a pool of 376 eligible participants who entered the quarterly drawing sponsored by Iowa Student Loan. “Parents are often unsure of how to help their student think about and plan for the future,” says Iowa Student Loan President and CEO, Steve McCullough. “We want to help them understand the planning steps that apply to each student’s grade level and what they as a family can do now to prepare for success in college and careers.” The free service is provided in twice-monthly emails to parents and guardians who sign up at www.sp3.org. Registered recipients have the opportunity to enter the quarterly drawings for deposits into a college savings account. The program is in partnership with College Savings Iowa, ICAN, the Iowa School Counselor Association and Strada Educational Network.
