Upward Bound Meets at ECC

About 40 Upward Bound students toured the Tarboro campus of Edgecombe Community College on Wednesday, June 18, 2014, as part of their annual two-week summer institute at the college.

The goals of Upward Bound are to increase high school graduation rates and to prepare students for college. Upward Bound participants meet at ECC’s Rocky Mount campus on Saturdays throughout the school year to study math, science, and English, among other subjects.
