From Boca Raton To Santa Monica, Higher Education Now Within Easier Reach For Graduating Seniors.
CARLSBAD, California (June 15, 2011) – To help America’s families with college bound students, Ducerus, the leader in college planning and funding has added 15 franchises to its nationwide company. The new locations are in Boca Raton, Florida; Burbank, Carlsbad, Rancho Bernardo, San Jose and Santa Monica, California; Dubuque, Iowa; Richmond, VA; Fort Worth, Grand Prairie and Houston, Texas; Scottsdale, Arizona; Shakobee, Minnesota; Union, New Jersey.
Team members heading up the new Ducerus offices include a former high school teacher, restaurant owner, executive recruiter and published author. While having varied backgrounds, they each share a passionate interest in the field of academics. All are rewarded by helping families afford college, many having gone through the process themselves with their own children.
Case in point is Ed Bove, a tax and financial advisor by trade and Ducerus’ new Union, NJ team member. “After trying to get through the maze of college admissions and financial aid systems for my eldest child, I heard Ron Caruthers, the CEO of Ducerus, speak at a tax planning seminar,” explained Bove. “By the end of his college planning talk, I was on the edge of my seat in amazement and wanted to become part of the solution, too!”
According to Ron Caruthers, CEO of Ducerus and industry pioneer in college planning, “most people are unprepared.” He added, “By growing our network of academically committed and talented professionals throughout the U.S., we are able to maximize education possibilities for American families.”
A message via Facebook from Marc, a Ducerus client said, “Just wanted to let you know that I just met with Financial Aid for Grand Canyon University! They are giving my daughter the max for scholarships for next year, $16,500, which leaves her a little short…BUT she’s already received the Canyon Scholarship and Guild Scholarship which cover the rest! 2 years down at a private University and NO DEBT!”
“These are the success stories we’ve seen over and over again,” explains Caruthers. “With today’s challenging economy and job market, it’s even more important to be prepared for college – both financially and in choosing the right school and course of study. With our growing U.S. team, we look forward to increasing opportunities for the next generation!”
