AT&T is making a $15,000 Aspire grant to help Bartholomew Consolidated Schools C4 students learn more about drones and unmanned vehicle technology.

Soards explains the Aspire grant program helps students learn the skills for good-paying jobs.
Soards said that the grant will allow students to learn the skills they need for jobs that don’t even exist today.
The grant was made to the Bartholomew Consolidated School Foundation. Since starting in 2008, the Aspire program has provided more than $450 million to programs for schools, Soards said.
