August 2015 Sweepstakes Survey Results

Thank you for participating in our August $100 sweepstakes! A total of 37 parents submitted their answers to enter the drawing. Check out what parents learned from the August newsletter.

Congrats to Our August Sweepstakes Winner
Winsome Francis!

Teamwork is an important part of any family’s college plan, especially for our August Sweepstakes Winner, Winsome Francis. Although she did not attend college, she says it was always in the plan for her son, Rojae. Her husband attended Wentworth and she went on to become a Certified Nurse’s Assistant. Before joining Inversant, Winsome says she felt uninformed about the college process and any information from the news was often confusing.

Already a member of the TEEP program, she discovered Inversant and was excited to receive information through workshops that seemed much more personal and accessible. “Rojae was only a freshman when I started the program but Inversant was able to keep me interested throughout the years...It’s very comfortable being in that meeting to ask questions. I would describe Inversant as a comfort zone.” As Rojae begins his senior year, Winsome says, “My ambition along with my son’s ambition makes us a great team.” Rojae encourages her to read the monthly Inversant newsletter and she supports him in his leadership role at TEEP, where he has been working as a counselor. They are working on beginning the college process and say one of the most important things they have learned during their time as an Inversant family has been that “no matter how small the amount is, every little bit adds up.”

Rojae is looking at Amherst College, NYU and UMass Amherst and wants to study computer science. He and his mom are focused on being attentive and trying their best to apply to as many scholarships as possible to accompany their growing savings. Congratulations and best of luck in the college application process!
