Charles City & Mason City residents win free tuition at NIACC

Mason City, Iowa – A few north Iowa residents will receive free tuition, books and more for the upcoming NIACC school year.

Shelby Crane, along with Dillon Meek of Mason City, were both selected as winners of the Extreme Makeover: College Edition that NIACC holds each year.

Crane says the win will help her continue her job, spend more time with her son and focus on school work instead of seeking out another job.

There were three other finalists as well: Stephen Hunt and Ashley Salinas, both of Charles City and Timothy Church of Manly. Those finalists will receive half-price tuition.
