Sweet-Holp said, “The Vitamins Settlement Grant is to provide nutritional training for parents of pre-school-aged children in the Clarksville-Montgomery County area as well as for Austin Peay student-parents.”

According to Wilson, the funds should be received within the next few months. “Rena Miller, current director of the Child Learning Center, is putting together a plan that will adhere to grant specifications,” Wilson said. “Student-parents are eager to participate and probably will help plan the workshops.”
