French novelist and Nobel Prize winner Anatole France once remarked that “nine tenths of education is encouragement.”
That encouragement just received some encouragement of its own.
On Tuesday morning, various representatives from the Vallejo Career Pathways Trust met at the Solano Community College Vallejo Center to discuss how local children and college students will continue to receive that encouragement, after the trust was awarded a $6 million grant as part of the larger California Career Pathways Trust.
The CCPT awards grant amounts to individual districts and colleges to craft partnerships, which helps students learn a certain program, preparing the students to enter a career field after high school or continue on to college to learn more about the field.
