Seniors take early action against student loans

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - It's high school graduation season and hundreds of seniors have already taken steps to help reduce the financial stress of student loans.

The seniors participated in the UPS School to Work program.

The program has been applauded by Harvard, written about by Forbes and financial gurus have called it "the only way to send your child to college."

Thursday night, around 200 graduating seniors were honored for their hard work in the program.

The graduates earned college credits by working shifts at UPS and taking a college course twice a week on UPS property.
