A former Whitehaven High School student and Duke University graduate is giving back to her hometown. Victoria Young officially launched "The Pipeline." This new program changes the face of college admissions.

Victoria says, scholarships are what got me in Duke. Duke costs 58,000 dollars a year. She attended Duke, free. Now, she is helping to pay back her good fortune by helping other students find scholarship money.

Victoria says, "Today we had 9 colleges come in and we really wanted to expose them and let them see that it's not just us saying it. I'm not telling you something, some kind of urban myth. These colleges are telling you how much it actually cost to go there. But, they are also telling you where to apply for the scholarships and what aid is out there."

The Pipeline wants future college students to know, you can go to college without going into huge debt.

For more information on The Pipeline Program, contact the non-profit group, Visionaries Inc.
