WASHINGTON, Jan. 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In this critical time, support of the career education sector is more important than ever. Events such as the Annual Imagine America Foundation Golf Tournament help underwrite scholarships and awards granted to career college students nationwide. For the second consecutive year, Gragg Advertising in Kansas City, MO will be the Event Sponsor of the IAF 2013 Golf Tournament.
Each year, Imagine America Foundation works with 900 career schools to provide scholarships that help students achieve their dreams. Over 23,000 students received tuition assistance last year! However, the Foundation is more than scholarships. 30,000 applicants have completed Financial Planning Made Simple (FPMS) since March 2011. Through the Tool, 49% of survey respondents said they decide to borrow LESS money for school.
"The Foundation's mission to help career education students improve their future is one Gragg Advertising is honored to support." said Darryl Mattox, President, Gragg Advertising.
The 2013 IAF Golf Tournament will take place during the Annual Convention & Exposition in Orlando, FL on Wednesday, June 5, 2013.
