BIG SPRING - Howard College is getting some much needed funding thanks to the U.S. Department of Education.

Because the college is a Hispanic serving institution, the school has been selected to receive 3.1 million dollars over a five year period.

With the new funds, the school will expand several programs including student technology and add more personal services and resources to the College.

The college says the recent enrollment numbers greatly helped the school receive the grant because of the increase in Hispanic students.
