A Houston father is doing what he can to help pay his daughter's way through college.

Glenn Dollison sent a letter to abc13 and told us that he needed help getting the word out about his rope-sign creations.

He makes them out of scrap wood, usually from downed fences and rope in his backyard.

He told us that he's not trying to become a millionaire. For years he's lived paycheck to paycheck as a graphic designer and never had much money to save for his daughter's college tuition.

"It really does tear you up inside. You know you try to do something but how are you going to get there? You try to apply for scholarships, you try to apply for grants but there's just not a whole lot out there. If I had to sit out on the street and beg for money, that's what I would do," said Dollison.

Dollison said his daughter was forced to get student loans to attend her first year at Stephen F. Austin University. He said since a young child, his only daughter Brittany has been destined to be a special education teacher.

"She just wants that so bad. So I've got to do something. I can't let other people not have her as a teacher. She's just going to be an inspirational teacher," said Dollision.

He said her calling is his inspiration, even though his sales are slow.

"The rope signs are just not rope signs," said Dollison. "I don't want to be a millionaire. I just want to get her through school."
