In case you missed it, the Northfield TORCH (Tackling Obstacles and Raising College Hopes) program was highlighted in the lead editorial of the October 10, 2012, edition of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Click HERE to check out the editorial, titled, "Northfield closes achievement gap."
TORCH works to increase the graduation and postsecondary attendance rates of Northfield's low-income youth, students of color, and potential first-generation college attendees.
TORCH is funded by local donations, as well as grants from the Minnesota Office of Higher Education, Northfield Area United Way, Women In Northfield Giving Support, Blandin Foundation, and Xcel Energy Foundation.
