New School Program Begins in Brunswick Co.

SHALLOTTE

-- A new program to help students in Brunswick County schools is now underway.

The program is called ASPIRE, and there was an event to celebrate its grand opening Friday in Shallotte.

ASPIRE will help children with afterschool work and partner them with a mentor. There are already 75 students enrolled.

Organizers say the response has been amazing, and although school is out for the summer, the program is in full swing.
