Beginning in the spring of 2019, all graduates of E. C. Glass and Heritage high schools will be eligible for scholarships to attend local colleges, universities or accredited technical certification programs.

They include Liberty University, Centra College of Nursing, Central Virginia Community College, Randolph College, Sweet Briar College and the University of Lynchburg. LCS students will have the opportunity to take advantage of free community college, or up to $8,000 over four years. The program is the first local initiative of its type in Virginia.
