New Donors Invest in Graduation Matters Challenge Fund

Beartooth NBC (01/21/14)

AT&T and the Steele Reese Foundation have donated $20,000 each to the Montana Graduation Matters Challenge Fund to support new and existing initiatives. A portion of the AT&T donation will be focused on raising American Indian graduation rates. Of the $190,000 available through the program, each grantee will be awarded up to $10,000 to replicate successful dropout prevention strategies. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Denise Juneau says, "Montana businesses and communities continue to respond to the call to lower the dropout rate and improve Montana's economic future. Every student we are able to keep from dropping out of school or who is inspired to continue their education after high school benefits not only that individual, but the entire state."
