I see kids every day who never thought college was possible for them, but are now excitedly scheduling their classes for next year. It's been a thrill to be a part of it!
- Becca, Warren County mentor
I really enjoy being a mentor, it is a great experience for me. I have received nothing but positive feedback from my students and their parents about the program.
- Floriana, Robertson County mentor
As the only person in my family to ever go to college, tnAchieves has made it easier for me to understand what I need to do to succeed.
- Central H.S. Student
tnAchieves introduced me to my mentor, Charlee, who helped me get on track and kept me focused. With her help, I was able to realize that anything was possible.
- Fulton H.S. Student
The students’ desire for help was an eye-opener. I did not realize that they would want, need, and appreciate my help as much as they did!
- Olivia, Hancock County mentor and tnAchieves Ambassador
I’m very proud to be a part of the history being made right in front of our eyes.
- Benny, Lewis County mentor
All my life I always said that I would be the first in my family to make it to college and graduate. tnAchieves is helping my dream come true.
- Austin East H.S. Student
Going to college would be a milestone that I can not hope to reach without the help of tnAchieves.
- Powell H.S. Student
I believe the students really get it now, and know that there are people who are invested in their futures
- Charles, Shelby County mentor
