One year and 1,600 students later, leaders of the La Crosse Promise Centers are feeling successful.
The community group created resource centers in the three La Crosse high schools and Onalaska Luther to help students with any questions they may have for life after high school.
The centers are funded for three years.
And they're not just helping with college admission, they have details on certification programs and getting into the military. "Our results were good our first year, I think we clearly understand what we need to do in our second year and we're already actively on strategies and plans to make the second year better yet," said the Promise Centers' Director Jerry Kember.
Phase two of La Crosse Promise is to make scholarships available to area families.
