Walters State Community College recently announced its own Promise program for local students to help attract and retain the top talent which is now staying in-state because of the Tennessee Promise. This commitment funds costs, such as textbooks and travel expenses, not covered by the Tennessee Promise or other financial aid.
“Through the Walters State Promise, we want to demonstrate how much we value the academic accomplishments of high school graduates from our community,” said Dr. Wade McCamey, Walters State president. “They have worked very hard to achieve their academic goals, and WSCC wants to reward them for their commitment to education.”
Local graduating seniors who have posted a 3.7 high school grade-point average and at least a 26 on the ACT are eligible.
