Governor Cooper visits Finish Line Grant recipients at ACC
Gov. Cooper visited Alamance Community College earlier this month to discuss the Finish Line Grants program and to talk with students who have received the grants. The governor is pictured above with Regional Partnership Workforce Development Board Director James Bain on the right during the round-table discussion with students.
To date, more than 200 students have received Finish Line Grants and more than $2.5 million in funding has been awarded to partnerships of colleges and workforce boards. Recently, the program expanded eligibility to students who are at least 50 percent of the way through their programs of study (rather than the previous 75 percent).
