BCTC receives $44,000 in funding from United Way

LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 23, 2011) Bluegrass Community and Technical College programs that develop literacy and promote dual credit enrollment will get a boost in funding thanks to grants from the United Way of the Bluegrass.

A total of $44,000 will be distributed to BCTC Operation Read and to the Easing Transitions into Postsecondary Education program.

The grants will fund one year of the BCTC programs, but the grants may be distributed for two additional years if the programs make satisfactory progress and funding is available.

The funds were granted to community programs that build income, education or health in the community.

The BCTC Foundation is a non-profit organization that raises and manages funds for scholarships, program support and campus development to support the mission of Bluegrass Community and Technical College.
