Sens. Mark R. Warner and Tim Kaine announced today that the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) has awarded the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development and the New College Foundation a $500,000 grant to expand the New College Institute (NCI) in Martinsville.
This morning Sen. Warner met with about 35 Virginians from Danville, Martinsville, and Pittsylvania Counties on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. These young men and women are participants in the Project Discovery college-access preparatory program, which helps potential first generation college attendees plan for their future while they’re still in high school.
