Episode Description

I believe it is the students who make an institution great, one by one, year after year. In today’s episode, you’ll learn exactly why I believe this state institution is on it’s way to greatness. How do YOU define greatness? Do you see the vision of greatness before it happens? I KNOW there are teenagers out there who crave and desire nothing more than to be part of MAKING something great. Ask yourself - does your child look at toys, problems, challenges and think, “HOW can I improve this?” Today’s guest, Kelsey Kaplan, is the Senior Admission Coordinator at UNLV. Whether or not UNLV is for you, my friends, trust me when I tell you that Kelsey’s journey to college and the harsh reality of affordability will make your heart melt. While a parent’s belief and hope for their child is limitless, sometimes there are limits to what a family can offer financially. Kelsey’s courageous decisions at the young at of 17, makes her truly GREAT in every sense of the word.
