I am writing this request for assistance with paying for my son’s tuition that is due less than two weeks.
Caleb Smith is a 2023 high school graduate with a certification in Masonry. He is a football player and has been given the opportunity to attend Palmetto Preparatory Academy in Columbia, South Carolina this fall from August to November. By the time this season end, he would be picked up by a Division I or II school to continue his education. Some tuition has been paid, but the remaining balance is $5400. This includes his apartment(utiliites included) and tuition. The meal plan which include 5 meals a day(3 main meals and two snacks) cost $875.
The school has created a payment plan for me to pay on this throughout the season until completed. The biggest problem has been me being the only provider in this household that take care of everything. Caleb work and help me with the car note and car insurance. As I look for and jobs with better income, as well as wait for call backs, I Doordash full time. It helps with some things, but still behind in all things which allows me to not be able to set aside anything. At this point I had expected some investment money to be available to pay for his tuition, but that is not available. The plan was while waiting for the money, I would have had another job to help me with those expenses, but every door has been closing or unresponsive.
Caleb is really an awesome young man who deserve the best! Extremely selfless and I could not ask for a better son. This is why I am requesting assistance with the tuition. The payment plan starts July 14th, 2023 at $108, and next week a different amount. I do not want to be in the red with his payments, because if so, they will kick him off the team and so forth.
No it is not anyone’s responsibility, but mine to take care of his needs, but I have been trying to make it happen, and I keep getting nothing. I am working around the clock to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table. This is just a mother who is in need of some major help to get my son in school without him being put out, heartbroken and peace of mind disrupted. Caleb deserves a chance. This is definitely for him.
