I-Scream, You-Scream, We All Scream For College Savings!

Path2College Partners with Sonic® and Bright from the Start to Reward Pre-K Students with
a FREE Vanilla Twist

Spring is in the air. From kindergartners to high school seniors, Georgia’s youth are busting out of their desks ready to enjoy the warm sunny days of summer vacation. But before that final bell rings, the Path2College 529 Plan has partnered up with Sonic®, America’s Drive-In®, to kick-off summer by rewarding rising kindergarten students with a FREE vanilla cone at participating Sonic locations. Starting May 1 through June 30, 2009, parents can go to to print a coupon for their eligible children.

The Path2College 529 Plan, Georgia’s tax-advantaged higher education savings plan, is an opportunity for parents, grandparents, family and friends to prepare financially for their loved one’s college education expenses. “With the cost of education skyrocketing, it is essential that parents start saving early,” notes Chuck Penuel, Director of Path2College. “We have teamed up with Sonic to reach parents of young children throughout Georgia and make them aware of the Path2College 529 Plan as an important tool in their college savings strategy.”

“Sonic® is proud to partner with Path2College to focus attention on the importance of saving for higher education,” notes Dominic Losacco, vice president of customer engagement for Sonic. “Partnering with organizations that benefit families and further education is Sonic’s way of saying thank you to our loyal customers and employees in the communities we serve.” With more than 3,500 locations nationwide, Sonic’s smiling Carhops serve up a delicious menu of meal and drink options, made-to-order.

“We share Path2College’s commitment to the education of Georgia’s children,” said Dr. Holly Robinson, Commissioner of Bright from the Start: Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning. “Together, we can all work to help ensure bright futures for our youngest citizens.”

Bright from the Start is pleased to team up with Path2College and Sonic to extend the free vanilla cone offer to families throughout the state.
