A2 1 1 r Financial aid Discover the financial aid options available at UVSC - Robert Hayden News designer Earning a college degree requires the devotion of time and effort. It also requires something less readily available to college students: money, a lot of money. The cost of higher education has soared; according to USA Today , tuition, fees, room and board at public four-year colleges nationwide have surged 38 percent in the past decade alone. A solution exists: Financial Aid, in the form of grants, loans, work and scholarships.

Eyewitness descriptions of the suspect and vehicle on the scene of the burglary at an Allen's Super Save Mart led to Hardin's arrest.

The vehicle eyewitnesses described aided police in the arrest as officers stopped a car that matched the getaway vehicle's description. Footprints left behind in the snow at the scene of the crime matched those on the tread of the shoes Hardin was wearing.
