‘Financial Aid Rock Star’ Alex DeLonis Advocates for Students

"Like so many other kids, Alex DeLonis didn’t think college was a possibility," Wabash College reports

..."Recently, DeLonis was appointed to serve as a member of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA) FAFSA Simplification Working Group."

..."The purpose of the FAFSA Simplification Implementation Working Group is to provide campus-level feedback, perspective, and insight to both NASFAA and the Department of Education through the implementation process."

..."Chip Timmons, Dean for Enrollment Management, said Admissions and Financial team members were proud but not surprised by DeLonis’ recent appointment to NASFAA’s FAFSA Simplification Working Group. He said DeLonis’ work experience and attitude make him a 'financial aid rock star.'

'Our staff who have had the chance to see him work with students would say that’s exactly who we need helping figure out how to improve the FAFSA,' Timmons said. 'Going to college is a life-changing experience, and Alex has a gift for making financial aid – a topic that isn’t always simple to work through – easy for people to navigate.'”
