Staff at Davis & Elkins College are working to see that another class of high school students continue their education.

D&E's Upward Bound program is in full swing this week.

Rising seniors from five counties near Elkins spend six weeks during the summer at D&E taking classes to help them prepare for college or professional school when they graduate next year.

Director Carol Suder-Howes said the six-week program stresses the importance of a good education.

"They're not getting any college credit for this, they're not getting any high school credit for this, in the classic program, they are actually getting hooked on learning," said Suder-Howes.

Students in the program will continue to take similar classes over the next school year before they graduate.
