LIVERMORE FALLS — Spruce Mountain High School Principal T.J. Plourde announced at last week's Regional School Unit 73 board meeting that his school has received a Gear-Up Grant of $75,000 a year for seven years.
The program, aimed at increasing student application and attendance to post-secondary education, is coordinated by the University of Maine at Farmington.
"This will give more opportunities for students," Plourde said. The grant covers students in grades seven through 12.
A College Access Team, to be comprised of guidance counselors and other staff, will organize on Jan. 29 at UMF.
