FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 21, 2013) — Beaver Dam resident Amy Cook is the state’s latest winner of a new iPad from the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA).
Kentucky residents could enter the contest by “liking” KHEAA’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/KHEAA and answering a question about college.
Cook, a single mother of four and a teacher’s assistant at Skill Train Ohio County, said she was surprised to learn she had won the iPad.
“After entering the contest, I didn’t think much about it and was shocked to get an email saying I had won,” Cook said. “I was also extremely happy because I had been thinking of purchasing one to use for school.” Cook will major in elementary education this fall at Western Kentucky University.
Cook added that she found KHEAA’s website, www.kheaa.com, to be a helpful tool for college planning.
“They had a link for so many of the questions I needed answered,” she said. “The information was stated in a way that was easy to understand.”
KHEAA is the state agency that administers student financial aid programs such as the Kentucky Education Excellence Scholarship (KEES).
