Tifton- Abraham Baldwin College received $500,000 in federal grants for their Upward Bound program. High school students enroll in the program which prepares them for college.

"It's a chance for 100 students to get an idea to what college is about, and hopefully increase the rate of students from high school going to college. It's a situation in Southwest Georgia that everybody in college education is hoping to improve on," says P. R. Director, Mike Chason.

ABAC is also offering it's first 4-year degree program through the University of Georgia this year. Now, students can earn an agricultural degree through UGA without ever leaving Tifton.
