Wallin Education Partners, Page Education Foundation help teens with college costs

Senior year usually means the hunt for college scholarships. For low-income and minority students, those resources might not seem so readily attainable or available. But two local institutions — Wallin Education Partners and Page Education Foundation — aim to help diverse Twin Cities students reach their goals for higher education by not only cutting costs, but advising them to greater maturity along the way. ThreeSixty reporter Dami Gilbert talks with students and foundation members, including former NFL player-turned-judge Alan Page, about the importance of maximizing these educational resources.

“Education is what everyone can benefit from. It’s a tool that can help overcome race, ability or disability. It is a tool that anyone can use to make their future better and brighter.” — Alan Page
