Jennifer Austin (above) has received a $500 grant from the St. Lawrence County Community Development Program and United Way to help her complete adult education courses and get a good job. Austin’s son Michael is in the home-based Head Start program in Massena. She is enrolled as an online student at Ashworth University from where in 2006 she received a certificate in medical transcription. She is now studying medical billing and coding. For the second year, the Wladis Law Firm and Strategic Development Specialists gave the United Way of NNY $1,500 to use for the scholarships.
