LORAIN — Starting next year, the Lorain School District hope more seniors will be walking across a graduation stage and preparing to go to college in the fall.

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown announced Monday an additional $100,000 in funding for the Project GRAD (Graduation Really Achieves Dreams) program in Ohio. Project GRAD serves 11 cities across the country and seeks to improve graduation and college attendance rates.

Ohio is a national leader in the program, according to Brown. It is the only state to have more than one Project GRAD site, with programs in Cincinnati, Akron and Lorain.
