August 15, 2011 by Anonymous

Kay Landrum, Weatherford College director of student outreach and student success, announced this week that the College’s Talent Search program grant has been renewed for another five years. The U.S. Department of Education awarded almost $1.2 million that will extend the program another five years, approximately $233,000 per year.

“The competition this year was extremely stiff, with many existing programs being cut,” said Landrum. “Weatherford College won this award because it scored a perfect total in the prior experience points section. This is due to the dedication of Director John Turntine and his staff, Susan Stone, Shanda Blount and Keilah Villarreal.”
