LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Students from the Brown School and Jefferson Community and Technical college created a visual reminder to apply for financial aid for college as soon as possible.
They made a human billboard in the lobby of the KFC Yum! Center that spelled out 55-K, a reminder that this month is Financial Aid Month and that students need to fill out their federal forms to be eligible for grants and loans to be able to pay for college.
Tuesday's demonstration was part of the 55,000 Degree program, an effort to bring that many more college degrees to the community above and beyond what is already projected by the year 2020.
