Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) — Republican Gov. Bill Haslam is visiting Columbia State Community College on Tuesday to welcome back students participating in his Tennessee Promise program that offers free tuition at the state's two-year colleges.

Haslam's visit to the school's Williamson County campus in Franklin follows the news that Tennessee for second year in a row has lead the nation in the rate of Free Application for Federal Student Aid filings, which is one of the prerequisites for the free tuition program.

Haslam says the FAFSA form completion shows an improvement in the college-going culture in Tennessee.

The Tennessee Promise program is part of Haslam's Drive to 55 initiative, which aims to grow the state's graduation rate to 55 percent by the year 2025.
