Company History

Tom Pabin, Class 101 President/Founder

Class 101 

Tom Pabin, president of Class 101, and his expert staff have years of experience working with high-school-age youth.  After opening the first office in August 1997 in Lexington, Kentucky, it was soon apparent that the college planning format Mr. Pabin used was successful and could be expanded to other areas.

 

” I believe our faith and our families come first.  We have been given a change to enhance our lives and others, we should take advantage of that …. ourselves that we receive.  In that philosophy, Class 101 was started.  We are here not only to help families save money, but to help make a difference in a young person’s life.  That, my friends, is worth everything to me!” – Tom Pabin
