Three Eastern Kentucky counties that are among the poorest in the nation will benefit from a federal education grant of up to $30 million to Berea College. The college announced Tuesday it had won one of five grants awarded nationally under a U.S. Department of Education initiative aimed at improving education and students' development in poor areas. The money will be used for a range of services in Clay, Jackson and Owsley counties such as reading programs, after-school tutoring, arts and cultural offerings and expanded recreation.
