Here is an article showing how valuable a trade school education can be. And this is the reason that the Promise will pay for tuition at a trade school as well as a college.

Richard "Dick" Rollins, Ph.D., Three Rivers High School Class of 1964 was an historian, scholar, and friend to many. Dick completed his undergraduate in American History at Michigan State University.
