A state program that helps high school students pay for college in exchange for a two-year work pledge has seen only one student enroll. State Director Laverne Hueholt says the “School-to-Career” program lets a business pay for a high school student to attend a two-year college.Students must agree to work for the employer for two years after graduating college. Regional Director David Bunting says there are several businesses looking for workers. The state gives the business a 20-percent tax rebate to cover the cost of the tuition.A senior at Marion High School is the only one to sign up for the program thus far.
