Several Henry County High School seniors learned of an opportunity to graduate from college with work experience, completely debt free. Shelly Martin, a human resources recruiter with UPS Airlines' Center for Employment Opportunities, spoke to the group Friday about UPS' Metropolitan College and Earn and Learn programs.
The Earn and Learn program provides up to $5,250 in tuition reimbursement at approved post-secondary institutions for UPS employees. The Metropolitan College partners with JCTC and UofL to provide full college tuition at those institutions to part-time UPS night shift employees, plus up to $65 per class for books or software. All while being paid anywhere from $10 to $13 per hour for three to five hours per night, three to five nights per week.
Students who choose to enroll through these programs can pursue any major, are not required to work at UPS past graduation and open themselves up to opportunities to advance with UPS if they decide to continue working there.
