KINGSPORT HIGHER EDUCATION INITIATIVE (KHEI)
As Kingsport's economy began to suffer near the end of the 1990s and its workforce got smaller, the city saw education levels drop among its residents, threatening to deepen the already serious crisis. Finally, in 1999, a city-led economic summit resulted in an effort called "Educate and Grow", which offered scholarships to a local community college for any city high school graduate meeting entrance requirements.
Under this plan, city officials worked with the Sullivan County school board to develop and finance a host of new programs to enhance academic outcomes of Kingsport students and build a more qualified workforce, including K-14, which extends public high school by an optional two years to prepare students before they enter the workforce.

The Ohio College Access Network (OCAN) was the first statewide coordinating body for college access programs in the nation, helping residents pursue postsecondary education by building and supporting local college access programs throughout the state. Currently, 35 college access programs serve roughly one-third of Ohio's school districts, reaching 173,000 students each year. To learn more about OCAN, visit ohiocan.org.
