(ONTARIO)- Local elected officials and education leaders came together today to commemorate the creation of California’s College Promise, a landmark grant program that will help students earn college degrees. Last week, Assemblymembers Freddie Rodriguez (D-Pomona) and Patrick O’Donnell (D-Long Beach) announced that $15 million had been secured in the State Budget to fund the grant program.
“California’s College Promise is a victory for California’s students,” said Rodriguez. “Regional College Promise Programs like Ontario-Montclair Promise Scholars give students the support and opportunities they need to achieve their dreams. The state’s investment will enable these types of programs to spread across the state and help more students succeed.”
