GRAYSON COUNTY, TX--- Grayson College has received two grants that will help non-traditional students facing challenges to get college credit.

The first grant will help adults over 50-years-old who are facing challenges younger students don't typically deal with. It will help baby boomers with several aspects of college life, such as registering online and determining which classes to take.

The second grant will help veterans who also face challenges completing their degrees and certificates. Educators at Grayson College said veterans often get some of their education and training while serving in the military and this grant will award them college credit for it.

The 50+ grant is $15 thousand and comes from the Deerbrook Charitable Trust and Lumina Foundation. The veterans grant is $140 thousand and comes from the Texas Workforce Commission.

The veterans grant will focus on advanced technologies and manufacturing. It will end in 2014, so school officials said they have a lot of work to do in the upcoming months.
