ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – As the tax reform packages make their way through Washington, the president of Webster University is keeping a close eye on their progress. Beth Stroble tells KMOX she’s concerned that provisions concerning student loans and tuition waivers will prevent potential students from enrolling. She says students should be rewarded for earning a degree and adding to the region’s economy.
“We really think that the investment a student makes, any loans that they take out at Webster, is a smart investment in increasing the earning power of St. Louisans, and they should be able to take a deduction for that interest,” she says.
Stroble says Webster students triple their earning power when they earn their degree. She says the Senate’s tax proposal is a ‘bit more favorable’ than the house version.
