U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Missouri) will visit Three Rivers College – Sikeston at 3:45 p.m. May 2.
According to Blunt’s office, the senator will tour the TRC facility at 1400 S. Main in Sikeston, visit with students, and talk about the importance of Pell Grants, a federally funded needs-based program that helps students pay for a college education.
The Pell Grant program was expanded this year to provide grants for Summer classes, as well as the Fall and Spring semesters. Year-round Pell will allow qualifying students to continue taking classes in the summer and finish their degrees faster.
