Carrie Underwood believes everyone should take part in education beyond high school.
Speaking out via the recently launched CMT initiative "CMT Empowering Education," Underwood says "My graduation happened a year after I had planned for it to originally... because of all the things I had to get done in order to graduate. It was a great day for me, I was surrounded by friends of mine that I had been going to school with for several years and it was something that I feel like everyone should experience."
In a testimonial video below, Carrie goes on to say "Everyone should have that moment when they're proud of what they've accomplished."
"CMT Empowering Education, which challenges CMT viewers to pursue post-secondary education with the creation of the website, cmtempoweringeducation.com
, is a one-stop resource providing information on schools, career paths, motivation and financial resources. CMT has recruited some of music's biggest names to motivate and inspire viewers with their own education stories, including Underwood, Dierks Bentley, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, who are all featured on the site," reports CMT.
