WBTV reporter Dedrick Russell reported about Project Lift on Friday afternoon.
The program will seek to provide $55 million in private funding, which will support additional services and educational enhancements for Charlotte-Mecklenburg students.
The students who will be helped are in the West Charlotte corridor, defined as West Charlotte High School and the middle and elementary schools that feed into it.
