AT&T Aspire Helping Students Overcome Hurdles to Higher Ed
Just after Thanksgiving, we made an AT&T Aspire contribution to Zane State College (ZSC) for its QuickStart Program, a free, 8-week course designed to help first generation, underserved high school students and GED graduates overcome their reservations about enrolling in college.
QuickStart offers students a risk-free college experience with no financial obligations. Students earn 2 free college credits upon successful completion of the program and have the opportunity to enroll in 2 ZSC courses. The AT&T Aspire contribution will go toward the purchase of classroom tools and electronics for those enrolled in QuickStart.
“This is a great program to reach some of our most vulnerable young people,” said State Rep. Brian Hill, who participated in the announcement of the AT&T Aspire funding. “Educational programs like these ensure that students are prepared for higher education, leading to success in college, careers and life.”
New QuickStart classes begin on Feb. 5, 2018.
