Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin and Birmingham Promise Executive Director Rachel Harmon held a news conference Tuesday morning to announce the extension. Birmingham high school students who graduated in May now have until Friday, Aug. 14 to apply for tuition assistance.

“These students deserve our help,” Woodfin said. “They’ve earned this honor. We’re very proud of them.”
