MEET OUR GUEST
Jocelyn Pearson founded The Scholarship System to share her own experience of graduating from college with ZERO student loans. When college looked unaffordable for Jocelyn, she sprang into action and secured over $126,000 in college scholarships, even receiving an overage check for expenses.

Now she helps families learn how they can do the same by teaching them her 6-step System. Families have secured over $10.5 million in scholarships and growing! Jocelyn is from Charleston, South Carolina and has a beautiful little family with her husband, Donny, and daughter, Amelia.
