Crow Construction Invests $25,000 to Support New General Education Concurrent Program for Juniors and Seniors
Posted: January 2018

Thank you Crow Construction for investing in our community and our students here in Conway County. School Counts! and Leadership Conway County are so grateful for this $25,000 investment in our expanded general education concurrent program for eligible students.

Group comprised of Crow Construction members, school counts representatives, and various other community members displaying large check for $25,000.

The Leadership Conway County Class of 2018 has chosen as one of its projects this year to partner with School Counts, the high schools, and UACCM to provide financial support for concurrent enrollment in general education courses for juniors and seniors beginning in the fall of 2018. Concurrent enrollment at UACCM makes it possible for juniors and seniors to get a jumpstart on their college education. Through this partnership, in fall 2018 eligible students may receive financial assistance to enroll concurrently in general education courses at UACCM. Ashley Newman, with the LCC class, said, “The Leadership Conway County Class of 2018 is excited to partner with the schools in our county, UACCM, and School Counts to help raise additional funds to make these educational opportunities available to our students.”

According to Thomas Flowers, School Counts Board Chairman, “The concurrent technical program began in fall 2016 has proven to be very successful. We are excited to be able to expand the program to support concurrent enrollment in general education classes for eligible students.” For details on the programs supported through the School Counts initiative, visit the group’s website at www.ccschoolcounts.org , or visit with a high school counselor.
