On behalf of Antioch High School and other high schools involved, we want to thank everyone from the Hermitage and Nashville Deloitte offices who volunteered at last week’s Antioch High School FAFSA Drive. Thanks to all of the FAFSA volunteers from Deloitte, they reached two MNPS-FAFSA milestones:
Milestone #1 - 100 plus families in one night – On Thursday night January 17, volunteers provided assistance to 106 families at Antioch. This is the result of their hard work and a three year partnership with Antioch High School. The work with Antioch has included more than 100 volunteers assisting with Job Shadow Days, the Be the First Campaign, the JA Company Program, along with many other efforts.
Milestone #2 - More than 500 families impacted – On January 17, Deloitte provided assistance to the 500th FAFSA family! They ended the night with a three year total of 585 families served from their FAFSA Drives at McGavock High School, Antioch High School and Overton High School. This clearly puts them in a great position to reach the 600th family milestone at the Overton drive on January 24.
The McGavock Cluster Coalition helped more than 85 families during its Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Drive night yesterday.
Students and their parents received assistance filling out paper work, learning about college and university deadlines and how much federal aid students should ask for. The Donelson Hermitage Chamber volunteered for the evening as well as first –time volunteer Deloitte.
Deloitte will be hosting additional FAFSA Drives the month.

Students at Middle College High School are already earning college credits and attending school on a college campus. This year they'll be getting even more of the full college experience, starting school on August 13 and following the Nashville State Community College Academic Calendar.
"In addition to extending summer break," Principal Roderick Manuel says, "following the Nashville State Community College calendar will allow our students to have a more complete college experience and will give our students real breaks during the academic year."
Middle College students had huge college successes last year, with many earning associate degrees and general education certificates.
