Jonathan Peri, vice president and general counsel at Neumann University, has been appointed to the Tuition Account Programs Advisory Board by the president pro tempore of the Pennsylvania senate. According to the Pennsylvania Tuition Account Programs, “Through its annual report, the board provides the governor, general assembly, and the public with an informed and objective analysis of the operation and fiscal soundness of the program and makes recommendations for program improvements.” Peri will serve a four-year term.
The board oversees $1.5 billion worth of investments in Pennsylvania’s 529 College Savings Program, which includes the Now U guaranteed savings plan and the Now U investment plan. The Guaranteed Savings Plan (GSP) helps make college possible by guaranteeing savings to keep up with rising tuition costs, important tax advantages, and the ability to get one’s money back at any time.
