KENANSVILLE — For the third consecutive year the Upward Bound Program at James Sprunt Community College has received a $5,000 grant from the Duplin Foundation for Youth advancement.

These funds are raised largely through the annual Sheriff’s Ball and other contributions donated from Duplin County citizens.

Grants are available to local organizations with programs focusing on youth in Duplin County. The Upward Bound Program largely plans to use the funds to provide additional tutors during both the academic and summer programs.
