CHARLESTON - Beginning this fall, high school students in West Virginia can get help preparing for college over their cell phones.  Governor Earl Ray Tomblin announced Sunday that the Higher Education Policy Commission is launching a pilot program that offers counseling and college-readiness services via text message to students at 14 high schools. These students can communicate through texting with their high school counselor or an admissions and financial aid officer at the four participating colleges: Bluefield State College, Concord University, Marshall University and Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College.
