Approximately 2500 financial aid administrators from around the country gathered for the meeting in Nashville, TN. Shannon and Amanda's presentation was an exploration of two components. It involved some background on rural students: patterns most commonly found in rural students (one of the least likely groups to complete the FAFSA, less likely to be college ready, typically make less money in similar jobs when compared to their suburban counterparts), and some best practices. Many of the meeting attendees were practitioners, so Shannon and Amanda offered ideas and opened the session for discussion. Shannon has found that research supports that "work study is an important part of persistence...it offers students a connection to the institution and a reason to be on campus."
