Revels UMC program lands sub-grant


I Challenge You, Inc., a program of Revels United Methodist Church in Greenville, has received a sub-grant from the Department of Public Safety Division of Safety Planning.

The $22,880 grant is part of the Project Safe Neighborhoods Anti-Gang Program.

The Revels program plans to use the grant to enhance services provided to students by hiring certified tutors for math and reading. Program leaders said they believe if students are more successful in school they are less likely to drop out of school.

The program manager for the grant is Rosemary Horne with the Division of Public Safety and Planning in Jackson. The Revels I Challenge You Program is directed by Erie Stuckett.
