Foundation president Paul Lessard is quoted in the article.
HIGH POINT — A Say Yes information session at Andrews High School on Tuesday night brought questions from about 15 parents of high school juniors and seniors. On March 31, Say Yes Guilford announced it will begin rationing tuition scholarship money instead of granting funds to all Guilford County Schools graduates, as the program had earlier pledged. Under new guidelines, students from families earning more than $100,000 a year will not be eligible for the program. The Say Yes scholarship committee said limits on family income were needed to keep the program sustainable. The ﬁrst Say Yes Guilford class of 2016 received more in last-dollar tuition grants than the program can aﬀord. Speciﬁcally, $5.8 million was awarded, but the pace of fundraising will only support $1 million.
