I’m sure we’ve all heard the same lecture as we were growing up… about how important education is… and guess what? They were right! In today’s world it is really difficult to get a well paying stable job without a proper education. I am glad that I realized this even as a teenager and made sure to study hard and do well in school. I also made sure that I went right into college right out of high school. It became even more important to me than it already was when I found out that I was pregnant and going to have a baby about the same time that I graduated high school. I had to make sure that I was able to get a job that paid well enough for me to be able to take care of my baby on my own. I went to nursing school and this enabled me to provide for my daughter without the help of anyone else. Without going to college and earning my nursing degree I am sure that my daughter would have had a lot more financial struggles than we had. With a good education there are countless possibilities!

Let me tell you a little bit more about the FedEx One Rate, Countless Possibilities Through Education program. FedEx connects people and possibilities all around the world one package at a time. Here are some surprising facts that I bet you didn’t know about FedEx!
FedEx has committed to a $2.75MM donation to Teach For America (TFA) national and regional chapters and Teach For All in Latin America through 2015. FedEx also provides TFA with regional grants and in-kind support in Dallas, Mississippi Delta, and Memphis.
FedEx is a founding sponsor of the TFA Rising Leaders Fellowship, an innovative program that empowers over 100 students from over 30 top colleges to lead educational reform projects.
FedEx Office donates Educator Discount cards to TFA corps members, providing discounts for print and copy services, lowering their out-of-pocket expenses for classroom materials.
For the past five years, FedEx has taken part in Teach For America Week, where executives lend their imagination and expertise to co-create lesson plans with TFA teachers and help teach low income K-12 students. From 2010–2012, 17 executives from eight markets have taught nearly 600 students as part of the program.
