  • Florida Prepaid College Plans Open Enrollment starts this week

    It was more like a family reunion than a ceremony for 21 graduates receiving their General Equivalency Diploma.

    But for Levy County students, the Levy County Schools Foundation can help students — and parents — with some of the costs of higher education.
