Monday night marked the start of a new scholarship program for Clark County high schoolers.

The Clark County Community Foundation Scholars Program aims to help remove obstacles some students face at getting a higher education.

The program will partner CCCF with AGS College Planning to assist students in ther junior and senior years with issues like choosing a college and a major, creating a resume, going through the application process and taking the ACT and SAT.

The scholarship is funded by a $78,000 grant divided across three years.

This year 10 students from George Rogers Clark High School were selected for the program.

Beginning next year, scholarship winners will be announced at the end of their sophomore years.

AGS consists of three partners who have a combined 60 years of experience in college counseling and admissions. They have worked in colleges and high schools, and have visited more than 440 college campuses.
