Educating Our Community
The census helps to educate our community and provides opportunities for young people seeking educational opportunities.
The college access program TRiO, offered by Communities in Schools, is federally funded, and they use census data to help determine target schools for grant applications.
Student La’Mya Moffett participated in TriO as part of the class of 2019. She was also a Communities in Schools participant. As a result, La’Mya is a member of the first generation of her family to attend college.
La’Mya was recognized by CMS as an Outstanding Senior, and she has received a renewable $3,000 scholarship through Urban Promise. She is attending Fayetteville State University and is planning to study Computer Science or Aerospace Engineering.
