CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - In a Sept. 5 story about education grants, The Associated Press, relying on information from the federal government, reported erroneously that the University of Charleston will receive more than $339,000 and West Virginia Weselyan College will receive $2 million. University of Charleston spokeswoman Carrie Stollings said each school will receive $339,000 annually over five years, for a total $2 million.
