Beacon of Hope Future Centers Helps Seniors Plan For Future

Posted: Updated:

An education initiative in Lynchburg hasn't even been in place for a full school year, and it's already making a difference. The Beacon of Hope Future Center helps kids at EC Glass and Heritage high schools plan for life after graduation.

For an idea of how much the program is helping: in 2010, only half of the seniors at Heritage High decided to go to college or a technical school. As of November of this school year, more than 90 percent of seniors had already applied for college.
