LSSU, Coast Guard Renew Partnership

A partnership between two Upper Peninsula icons is being renewed.

Lake Superior State University and the U.S. Coast Guard in Sault Ste. Marie are celebrating 10 years of working together.

The university has a program to help guard members and their dependents earn an education while serving.

It sets LSSU’s tuition equal to the Coast Guard tuition assistance program.

This gives guard members the chance at an education with no cost to them.

Now in its tenth year, over 100 Coast Guard personnel and their dependents have taken advantage of the program.
