MCALLEN - The Upper Valley unfortunately has a high dropout rate. This is one of the reasons why STC is starting a new program that will give these young adults a second chance to finish their eductation.
News Center 23 Reporter Erin Murray met with one girl entering the program today. She wasn't a high school dropout, she has just fallen several semesters behind because of an unexpected family health problem. Erin tells us more.
