The report, Opening Doors,Changing Futures tells the story of an ARC initiative – The Appalachian Higher Education Network―to increase postsecondary education attainment in a region in which 54+% of the workforce (persons ages 25-64) –have only a high school diploma.  Using program data and personal commentaries, the report focused on school years 2011-2016 and identified the challenges faced by and the goals achieved by both the high schools participating in the program and the 6,699 non-traditional adults served. The AHE Network Leadership Mentor, Betty Hale, will provide a brief overview of the region-wide report, and three panelists representing postsecondary education access programs in three Appalachian states - Kentucky, Tennessee and Pennsylvania - will describe their work and identify how their efforts have contributed to increased postsecondary education attainment in the region.  They also will talk about the ongoing need to continue their efforts.

contribute to one’s community―depends on success in postsecondary education.” (Lumina Foundation)
