While THPL has only been around for a short period of time, there are other groups that have been delivering complimentary, thought provoking, messages and stories for quite some time. One of them is SXSW (South by Southwest), which is one of the country’s largest festivals, hosting conferences, music, films, and interactive events for nine days in Austin, TX.  This year, inspired by our students and the mission of THPL, we decided that we should put Penn Foster on display, at the event, and show the country just how unique, significant, and powerful a Penn Foster education is – ah, but to do this we need your help

We have planned a panel in which three of our students - DE Janiera ThomasColten Grothe, and Dana Hannan would participate in a panel where they would discuss their unique life stories and how they were able to overcome a number of difficult obstacles and accomplish their goals with a Penn Foster Education. We feel that these students represent students well: dedicated, hard-working, and willing to take on a challenge regardless of how tough it seems.

So, as it take votes to get them there you can, if you choose, please vote for the participants for SXSWEdu, so head to this link (
