Local Donors Step Up to Save College Prep Program

The Hartford Courant has published a feature story about Wesleyan’s Student College Success Program, which helps prepare students who are the first generation in their families to apply to college. The program, formerly known as Upward Bound, lost its federal funding this year for the first time in 45 years, but AT&T and other local businesses and organizations have donated money to run a program offering many of the same services.

The announcement was also covered in The Middletown Press and Middletown Patch.
