Cougar Promise


#1

This is huge for low income families. I grew up in a household that was below $50,000 combined income. I received financial aid and also used loans to cover the costs.

This new deal they are implementing will make it FREE for students who qualify. Such a blessing!!

LOL I GREW UP IN A HOUSEHOLD WHERE GROSS
INCOME WAS LESS THAN 8000 PER YEAR. OF CORSE
THAT WAS 66 YEARS AGO. GAS 14 CENTS, MOVIER 16
CENTS,BLUE JEANS 3.00, NEW CHEVY LESS THAT 2000.
ITS A SCHOCK TO SEE TODAYS PRICES ON THIS OLD
COOG.

Gene, I remember riding out to Old Montgomery Rd just off N. Shepherd in NW Houston and my dad was paying $0.125 for gas. I was not privy to any of the family finances, but I do remember a high school mate purchasing a VW for about $1200 and another picking up a new Chevy PU for less than $2000. I once went to a movie (Darby’s Rangers), my grandfather gave me a quarter. Walked to town, saw the movie, had popcorn and a soda and returned home with change left over. Those were the days, my friend . . . . . Hope to see you at another FB game. Enjoyed visiting in Lubbock . . . . .
