No more college tuition for Lee County (MS) high school graduates…
…who attend Itawamba Community College.
A college education is now an option for every high school graduate, over 650 students, in Lee County. The Lee County Mississippi Board of Supervisors and CREATE Foundation have established the Lee County/Marchbanks Helping Hand Tuition Guarantee Program… The program, which is the first county sponsored program of its kind in the State of Mississippi, is designed to guarantee fully paid tuition for four regular semesters of instruction for Lee County residents attending Itawamba Community College. Graduating seniors will receive tuition assistance, if needed, to close the gap between available federal, state, and private grants and scholarships. The purpose of the program is to improve educational attainment levels in Lee County, thus strengthening community and economic development.
