The University of Louisville has received a federal grant to help disadvantaged students prepare for college.
U of L’s Talent Search program targets middle and high school students and provides them with academic and personal counseling.
Roy Sutton is a counselor who plans on working with students from Western Middle School. He’s also a graduate of U of L’s Upward Bound program, which is similar to the new initiative. But with the Talent Search program, counselors will work in the schools to help students recognize that college is an option.
