The school located in McDowell County, an area overwhelmed with poverty, unemployment, drug abuse, and teacher shortages, provides after school access to computers, tutoring, recreation and a meal. McDowell County on Wednesday was expected to win approval to expand its role to include social services in a county that faces deep economic challenges. The project, called Reconnecting McDowell, brings together medical professionals, telecommunications firms and a teachers' union. (AP Photo/Randy Snyder)
