Group's goal is to help low-income students


Get support for college goals

Hernando High School has become a charter member of the College Board's College Keys Compact. The compact supports students from low-income families as they prepare for college. Hernando High is one of the first 500 schools to join.

The initiative promotes activities that include creating partnerships to provide more mentors and helping administrators, counselors and teachers understand challenges faced by students who are the first in their families to go to college or who come from low-income families. Higher education partners are encouraged to support these students by helping with fees and other financial needs.

For information, call Mary Krabel at 797-7015, ext. 407.
