       A $125,000 earmark in the Massachusetts state budget will help college students in western Massachusetts overcome financial obstacles to finishing their degrees.

     Democratic State Senator Eric Lessser of the First Hampden and Hampshire District announced the funding to help college students impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

     The funds will be administered by the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts, which will reach out to ten local colleges to determine who needs help.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
