Thank you UT

This is HUGE. From this morning's City Paper.

“I don’t know if people realize how significant this is,” [Stratford High School Principal Brenda] Elliott said “UT has decided that any student that is admitted to their university that attend these six Metro schools, they’re going to ensure tuition is paid.”
Those six high schools are: Antioch, Glencliff, Maplewood, Pearl Cohn, Stratford, and Whites Creek.

This is going to be significant encouragement for these students. The valedictorian at Stratford last year got a full ride to Vandy. That doesn't happen for most Stratford students. For most of them a degree from UT is more likely--especially with this program in place. Thanks to UT for the hand up.
