ARDMORE, OK - AT&T is launching a quarter billion dollar campaign that helps students who are struggling to graduate high school.

AT&T is donating $250 million to their Aspire grant.

Spokesperson Charlie Price said the money will go directly to school programs or foundations designed to help students graduate high school.

Although drop out rates at Ardmore High School are on the decline, administrators said this program could help area schools lower that number even more.

Price said national statistics show every 1 in 4 high school students won't graduate, which motivated AT&T to step up to help.

School administrators across the country can check on the AT&T website between now and April 18th to see if their school qualifies to receive money from the Aspire grant.
