MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A reception for prospective mentors for the upcoming school year will be Monday in Memphis.
The gathering at Leadership Memphis is sponsored by tnAchieves, a mentoring program designed to provide the chance for Tennessee public high school graduates to receive up to $3,000 annually for community college tuition.
A news release says the reception will involve tnAchieves staff and current mentors discussing their responsibilities. Mentors spend 10 to 15 hours annually assisting five high school seniors.
There are similar tnAchieves programs in 22 other counties. The program began in 2008.
