Journalist and mom of two writes parent’s guide to help get scholarships for students

Nationwide (BlackNews.com) — From cradle to crayon, preschool to prom, author Tonya McCleary provides parents with detailed advice on how your child can graduate with a scholarship in hand.

If you want your child to attend college and keep your retirement, this parent’s guide is a must read. Motivated by a desire to see their children achieve their own version of the American dream, McCleary and her husband began a journey that focused on getting their children excited about learning, prepared for achievement, and ready to turn obstacles into opportunities. How To Get Your Kid In College And Live To Tell The Tale provides parents with some insight into the long and sometimes tedious process that runs the gamut from standardized testing to college tours. It is a guide to help you guide your child into a bright future while keeping your sanity.

It is a quick read that will keep you referring back to it for the valuable information inside. The McCleary family has lived in Oklahoma, Missouri, Florida, Texas, and Ohio and use the unique experiences found in those places to prepare their children for higher education. Both their children received several full and partial scholarship offers throughout the country from some schools both large and small. Each is now attending college on full scholarships at Historically Black Universities.

McCleary is a veteran TV news journalist who has spent more than 25 years in broadcast news producing, reporting, and management. She has mentored journalists throughout the country and continues to do so. She plans to continue to work in journalism and is pursuing a Masters of Marketing and Communication and hopes to teach on a collegiate level. She believes writing this parent’s guide was a GOD-idea and will continue to help parents work on getting their kids to college.

How To Get Your Kid in College and Live to Tell the Tale shows readers what happens when “Mother Wit” meets “Mother Necessity” – pure gold that could help save parents thousands of dollars.
