We will continue to bring you the latest education news, information and resources through the year. 
  • NewsChannel10 has teamed with area businesses to bring you The Power of Knowledge scholarship since 2008.
  • We recognize the importance of continued education, be it a 4 year degree, 2 year degree, technical training or certificate program.
  • In fact, it has been shown that even 1 year of higher learning will improve a persons earning power in the work force.
  • In order to help make higher education more accessible to high school seniors in the Panhandle area.
