AT&T assisting high school students in Ingham and Eaton Counties
To assist rural high school students in Ingham and Eaton counties with the college preparation process, AT&T has partnered with the Capital Area College Access Network to support college events for high school juniors and seniors.
The AT&T* Foundation provided a $10,000 grant to the network to support college readiness, including assisting students in filling out financial aid forms. The grant will be used to assist students in Eaton Rapids, Webberville, Stockbridge, Leslie, Dansville, Charlotte, Maple Valley, and Potterville.
The effort kicked off with a financial aid event at Eaton Rapids High School.
“We are excited to partner with AT&T in this effort to make college more accessible for rural high school students,” said Capital Area College Access Network Executive Director Michele Strasz. “Their partnership will help us with our goal to help at least 70% of participating students be more prepared for college.”
