Kindergarten Students Wins College Savings Plan | News
Some say it's never too early to start to saving for college. Well a Warner Robins family has over $5,000 in the bank for higher education for their daughter who has just entered primary school. That's all thanks to a summer reading program sweepstakes.
Natalie Brantley won the Path2College sweepstakes for $5,529.
Path2College says the sweepstakes is to encourage parents to start saving for college early and encourage summer reading.
"Because it helps us to promote the sooner you start saving the more opportunity you have to save more money when you finally get to that point of deciding which college you want to go to you are less limited by the amount resources that you would have," said Mitch Seaubaugh, Executive Director of Path2College 529 Plan.
"It just gives her a head start there's just you know it's exciting that she has this much money because it probably would have taken us longer than five years to save it up, to save five thousand dollars for her I know it would," said Amanda Brantley, Natalie's mother.
Natalie says she wants to be an art teacher or fairy princess.
The Brantley family hopes to send her to University of Georgia.
