Nashville State Community College joins with Nashville Financial Empowerment Center for Empowerment Event

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 10, 2017) – The Nashville Financial Empowerment Center will host Live Empowered on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 to provide information from Nashville-area financial, educational, and employment stakeholders to local community members. The event will be held from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm at the Nashville Financial Empowerment Center located at 302 Foster St. in Nashville. Nashville State Community College, TCAT Nashville, Metro Government of Nashville/Davidson County, Middle Tennessee Reconnect, United Way of Metropolitan Nashville, and other vendors will be represented at the event.

“Nashville State Community College is excited to participate in this event since financial empowerment is important to all Nashville residents,” said Laura Moran, Nashville State Community College Director of Admissions. “It’s an incredible time to get an education in Tennessee. Students can achieve their education goals and overcome the barrier of tuition with programs like Tennessee Reconnect and Tennessee Promise; however, there are still hidden costs associated with earning a degree. We want this event to help people in Nashville and prospective Nashville State students plan for their financial future,” Moran added.

Guests will be able to meet with companies providing flex income opportunities like Lyft and Postmates at this event as well. “The idea was to bring stakeholders together that link an individual’s economic opportunity and empowerment: additional opportunity for earning income, education, and personal finance. The partners wanted to show how these seemingly independent concepts are inextricably linked in one event,” said John D. Murphy, Senior Advisor of Economic Inclusion from Mayor Megan Barry’s Office. “This event is a great time to bring our Nashville community together and arm them with more information about how Lyft can be a flexible way to earn additional income,” said Sam Nadler, Lyft Nashville General Manager.
