A group of people got together in Huntington Thursday evening to put a plan in place on how to fix the dropout problem in Cabell County.
Many different after school programs, along with several school-related organizations came together for an education summit.
Almost 100 students in Cabell County drop out every year.
The goal of the summit was to put a plan in place with objectives the entire community can work together on.
“One way that we can do this is by having lots of mentors and counselors, and then support for families, like having basic needs," Sarah Blevins, of Huntington, said.
The summit was put on by the United Way of the River City.
