In tonight's Money Watch Q and A, we will sit down with a Financial Literacy Specialist at Truckee Meadows Community College to learn about the best approach for parents of college-bound students. Jeannette Smith will have advice about how and when to apply for scholarships and financial aid. She also has sound advice for motivating your child to advocate for him or herself. Smith, who is a full-time graduate student pursuing a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership, is also the head of the Financial Literacy and Money Education by Students or FLAMES program.
