Millie Lee started at Kendal~Crosslands Communities (KCC) as a waitress in the dining room. With the support of her manager, she used the Tuition Assistance Program and went back to school, and became a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). “As a single mother, the extra help using the Tuition Assistance Program made a huge difference, says Millie. I was able to go to nursing school, yet my salary went towards the mortgage and anything my kids needed.”
Tuition Assistance can help make the difference
The Tuition Assistance program is available for any staff member in good standing, full or part-time (part-time must have 10+ scheduled hours worked). Full-time staff members receive up to $5,250 per year of reimbursement, and part-time staff members receive up to $500 per semester towards one course. Hundreds of staff members have taken advantage of the Tuition Assistance program and the requirements for attaining the reimbursement are simple and straightforward.
Millie also took full advantage of the Kendal~Crosslands Communities CNA program. “There is so much offered here. It is why many staff members come here and enjoy the stability of a good organization”, says Millie.
From Waitress to Dining Room Supervisor to Health Care LPN to newly hired as KCC’s Home Care Manager, Millie’s career is just beginning, actually. She plans to continue to use the Tuition Assistance program and go back to school and get her RN. “Having a can-do versus a can’t-do attitude helps, but the benefits made the difference.”
