Education has been the fuel of the American Dream and this is our way to help someone realize the transformation that is possible.
Manchester, NH (Vocus) October 29, 2009
Sarah Anne Lewis of Cambridge, Mass.; Kelly Quinn of Boston, Mass.; and Frank Boyce of Brighton, Mass., have moved on to the final round of Southern New Hampshire University's Go-Getters Challenge. The Go-Getters Challenge is a promotion that will give one contestant an opportunity to earn and complete a free Global M.B.A. The three finalists are scheduled to appear live on "FOX25 Morning News" on Monday, Nov. 2, at 7:45 a.m., to explain how a SNHU Global M.B.A. will impact their lives.
Viewers will have an opportunity to vote for their favorite contestants at myfoxboston.com. SNHU will announce the winner on Friday, Nov. 6, at the Manchester campus.
The campaign was unveiled on the "FOX25 Morning News" Sept. 15 broadcast. Contestants were required to write a 500-word essay explaining how a Global M.B.A. would impact their lives. SNHU staff and faculty members served as judges and selected six semi-finalists. On-campus interviews followed and the field was then narrowed to three.
The winner will have the option of completing his/her degree on campus, on location or online, or a combination of the three.
"The ideal go-getter for us is someone who is goal-driven and willing to put in the time and effort to improve his or her life and the lives of those around them, but perhaps hasn't had the opportunity or resources to get to that next level in their education," says SNHU President Paul LeBlanc. "Education has been the fuel of the American Dream and this is our way to help someone realize the transformation that is possible."
