REENFIELD — Adults hoping to get into college could get their financial questions answered in a special event set for next month.

The Education Experience is designed specifically for adults who want to attend college classes, and one of several steps Danielle Daugherty has been taking since becoming the director of Hancock County L.I.N.K.

Daugherty, six months on the job in a new initiative to link county residents with higher education opportunities, said Leaders in Navigating Knowledge has become a tool to help local residents one at a time.

“People need to know it’s possible – it’s just what you have time for,” Daugherty said.

L.I.N.K. is an offshoot of other efforts to bring college courses to the county over the years. While bricks-and-mortar plans to bring Ivy Tech Community College and other universities to the county have been met with opposition from elected officials in recent years, L.I.N.K. is a scaled-back initiative to connect local residents to colleges.
