Charles City native wins tuition, books for a year at NIACC

Mason City, Iowa – A Charles City student will be attending NIACC for free for a year after winning the college’s Extreme Makeover: College Edition.

Shelby Lyn received an entire year of free tuition texts books and more according to the college.

“I don’t think I would have been as successful this year as I was,” Lyn says. “I would have had to get another part time job to help pay for books and tuition and that would have taken away from my homework time, only class study time, and time away from my son.”

Dillion Meek of Mason City also won.  Ashley Salinas, Timothy Church and Stephen Hunt each received half price tuition as finalists.
