A nationwide bus tour is underway to inform Latinos of the scholarship money available to them to pursue higher education. And, it’s going to make a stop in Missouri. The tour is organized by the Sallie Mae Fund, an organization that increases access to college and university through scholarships. Sallie Mae’s Harry Pachon says Latino parents want their kids to go to college, but there’s a lack of knowledge as to how to achieve that goal. The tour will spend two days in Kansas City – but it won’t be getting there any time soon. It doesn’t hit town until February of next year, but organizers are already starting an information blitz.
