Beginning February 24, seasonal, part-time, and full-time employees of Dollywood Parks and Resort will be eligible for the tuition program.

The investment in employee education will be made through Herschend's GROW U., a new program, piloted by Herschend Enterprises, Dolly Parton's operating partner in Dollywood.

"Our goal at Dollywood Parks and Resorts is to provide the best possible experience for both our guests and our hosts," said Eugene Naughton, President of The Dollywood Company. "We know when our hosts are happy and feel cared for that they are going to pass that along to our guests. The creation of the program allows another avenue for us to care for our hosts.

"One of The Dollywood Foundation's key tenets is to 'learn more.' This program is created with that very tenet in mind. We want our hosts to develop themselves through advanced learning to fulfill the foundation's other tenets: care more, dream more, and be more. When our hosts strive to grow themselves, it makes our business and our community a truly better place. We care about our hosts' development and we want their future to grow because of love—not loans."
