AWC Student Helps Others with FAFSA

Yuma, AZ (October 18, 2018) – Bailey Figueroa is graduating from Arizona Western College with her associate’s degree thanks to Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) funding.

She was initially inspired to pursue higher education after watching her older sister, Tiffany, become the first person in their family to graduate from college. Bailey wanted to follow in her sister’s footsteps, but finances were an obstacle. Without financial aid, she would have only been able to take two classes per semester due to cost.
