Dolly Parton is a national treasure. She – and her company– announced that they will fund the educational expenses for workers at Parton’s Dollywood as well as other locations under its operation.
Not only will they cover tuition but also books (which can be a huge expense) and all fees.
Named ‘GROW U,’ the program will include options for diplomas, degrees, and certificates in fields such as business administration, finance and technology.
The program is set to launch on February 24.
This isn’t the first time the country music star has Parton has stepped in to help — she has a long history of charitable endeavors including her long-running literacy awareness program, she gave money to victims of the 2016 wildfires in the Smoky Mountains and donated ONE MILLION dollars to the Moderna vaccine .
Long Live Dolly!
