Knox College To Allow Iraq, Afghanistan Vets Free College Tuition

From WGIL radio:

Knox College has joined in a national program that will allow veterans of the current wars on terror to go to school absolutely free.

Knox has become a part of the national “Yellow Ribbon Program” — a federal initiative patterned after the GI bill that will allow those who’ve served in Iraq, Afghanistan, or elsewhere since the September 11th terrorist attacks to go to Knox without paying tuition.

Knox College Public Relations Director Karrie Heartlein tells WGIL it’s an initiative the college simply couldn’t say no to. “It’s really exciting for us, because it’s an opportunity for us to serve veterans who have served our country,” Heartlein said.
