Tennessee officials have been working this week to promote the state’s new free tuition plans. One program is designed not only to boost college enrollment. It might also help get people into the military.
Members of the Tennessee National Guard previously received up to two years of free education at a state community college, which is now basically offered to all Tennessee residents. The so-called STRONG Act extends the Guard’s program to four years at any public university.
