College for all Texans phone bank received over one thousand calls

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - As graduation draws near, many high school seniors look forward to going to college. But because of the rising cost, not all students get that privilege.

That's why the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board hosted the "College for Texans" phone bank on Wednesday in Austin. A program to help students and parents get helpful information on how to pay for college.

Each year four billion dollars is available to Texas students in many forms, but most of that money goes unclaimed.

NewsChannel 11's Abner Euresti was in Austin Wednesday and was live during the 5, 6, and 10 newscasts.

The phone bank number to call is 1-888-311-8881 or for more information, (click here) to visit the College for all Texans website.

The phone bank line will be open thru Friday.
