Lumina Foundation Designates Seven New Cities as Talent Hubs

Nearly $2 million in grants will support local efforts to increase education beyond high school

INDIANAPOLIS–Lumina Foundation, in partnership with The Kresge Foundation, has announced the designation of an additional seven communities across the country as Talent Hubs. These cities, along with 17 others selected in 2017, earned this designation by meeting rigorous standards for creating environments that attract, retain, and cultivate talent, particularly among today’s students, many of whom are people of color, the first in their families to go to college, and from low-income households.

The seven new communities designated as Talent Hubs are: Corpus Christi, Texas; Detroit; Elkhart County, Ind.; Las Vegas; Mobile, Ala.; Rio Grande Valley, Texas; and St. Louis. Read entire press release
