PAST SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS
For the last 5 years we have prompted audiences to create a scholarship for Rice Financial Group. I told them I'd pay them $1,000 as a scholarship to do it. Sierra took me up on it and created the Other People's Money College Scholarship based on a financial planning seminar that I created titled, "How to Pay for College with Other People's Money." We all have Sierra to thank for this scholarship. Bravo Sierra!
