My son has just received word that he has been approved to receive Pell Grants for both semesters of the 2012-13 year. As a single mother, I cannot tell you how much this means to me, as well as my son. He has dreams of teaching English as a second language, and thanks to the help this grant will give us, we have the help we need to make that dream become a reality.

This is a family who is thankful to know that our President is on the side of students who are trying to better themselves.
