The Mason County Promise Zone

The Mason County Promise Zone was established in 2018, with its first cohort of 80 Promise Scholars at West Shore Community College in the 2018-19 academic year.  This year, the number of new Promise Scholars grew to 105, with two-thirds of applicants choosing college, in part, because of the Promise. But the Promise is more than numbers of students, it's a commitment from the communities, companies and citizens of Mason County to our youth and to the future.

“ The Mason County Promise Zone will provide access to affordable education and job preparation opportunities to many who otherwise would not be able to participate because of life circumstances. As well as providing a means to access for many, the Promise Zone will lower the cost of education for others, help create a college-going culture in the county, while providing supplemental support to the public school systems. I am excited to watch the positive impact the Promise Zone will have on Mason County.”
