Graduating High School Seniors Receive Promise Scholarship
For 23 graduating seniors at one Northern Michigan school, College is no longer just a dream. That's because from now on, every graduate from one Lake County School District will get help paying for higher education. Last year, the State named 10 school district promise zones; Baldwin Community Schools in one of those zones. They're the State's first promise zone to come up with the funding and offer the promise scholarship. That means every graduate of Baldwin High School will receive up to $20,000 toward college or university beginning with the class of 2010. 9&10's Chivon Kloepfer and Photo Journalist Corey Petee have more details in this report.
