The Bridge Conference Scores Home Run for ECHS

In her monthly column published in the Las Cruces Bulletin, The Bridge President/CEO Denni Cheney writes about a recent conference conducted in support of New Mexico’s early college high school students.  The June conference coincided with completion of a $525,000 ECHS Expansion Grant the Daniels Fund awarded to The Bridge in 2013.  Four ECHS start-ups were sponsored with the grants to Albuquerque, Carlsbad, Gadsden and Hobbs public school districts.
