Kim’s Story: Destination Graduation Helps A Student Stay In School


Meet Kim Ranachowski, a graduate from at Seminole State College who was studying to be a Physical Therapist Assistant. Kim was at risk of leaving her studies for a full-time job to be able to make ends meet, but then Destination Graduation stepped in to provide financial assistance that helped Kim support her basic needs and stay on track for graduation.
