HEAR FROM SOME OF THE STUDENTS WHO HAVE BENEFITTED FROM THE S.T.E.P. PROGRAM:
Aubrey - 3 Years Tenure: Secondary Education Major at UNL.
"I was attracted to Amigos/Kings Classic because of the lively work atmosphere. S.T.E.P. has paid 110% of my tuition for 6 semesters so far, so it is a great bonus."
Ben - 4.5 Years Tenure: Biology Major at UNK and Assistant Manager.
"It is a juggling act, but my manager lets me set up my schedule around classes and activities as much as possible and I can enjoy school more when I don't have to worry about how I'll pay tuition."
Darren - 3 Years Tenure: English Major at UNL.
"I work between classes over lunch and then add one or two weekend closing shifts so I get 100% tuition paid."
Lance - 1 Year Tenure: Criminal Justice Major at Peru State College.
Shavon - 5 Years Tenure: Political Science Major at UNK.
"A friend recommended I apply at Amigos/Kings Classic because she had paid her way through college with S.T.E.P. I didn't qualify for financial aid or certain scholarships, so working at Amigos/Kings Classic and getting the S.T.E.P. bonus is a good way for me to pay for school."
"It's nice not to have to worry about how to make ends meet. There's already rent and books, but at least I know S.T.E.P. will pay my tuition."
Jami - 5 Years Tenure: Speech Pathology Major at UNL.
"After working at the Beatrice store since I was 15, I worked in Omaha while attending the College of St. Mary. Now I'll be transferring to a Lincoln store since I'll be attending UNL. S.T.E.P. was a good reason to stay with Amigos/Kings Classic through the years. I work, but still have time to study."
