The students enrolled in the Richland Two AVID Early College housed at Ridge View High School four years ago.

Davis says the cost of going to college is always top of mind for parents of students who are seeking higher education. “Our graduating seniors have worked hard to lighten the load for themselves and their families. I am proud of the tools and opportunities Richland Two offers students to aid them in pursuing their dreams without having to finance their future,” said Dr. Davis.
