Mentoring Plays Major Role in Tennessee Promise

TN Promise’s goal is to provide an opportunity for every high school student in Tennessee to attend college.

Emily Yardumian, 18, is taking advantage of the state program, which is the brainchild of Gov. Bill Haslam and signed into law in 2014. She is a freshman at Motlow College majoring in music and computer science.

TN Promise, funded with lottery reserves, is a scholarship program that provides last-dollar funding for students attending community colleges or technology schools.
