High school seniors in The Evergreen State College Upward Bound program will be honored Wednesday at Evergreen’s Tacoma campus, 1210 6th Ave. The event begins at 5 p.m.
Many of the 80 seniors in the program joined it as eighth-graders. The program is aimed at low-income and first-generation college-bound students enrolled in Tacoma Public Schools and at Chief Leschi High School. It offers college-preparation classes, workshops and a summer program that allows students to take classes and live in college residence halls.
This fall, Upward Bound students from Lincoln, Foss, Mount Tahoma, Stadium and Chief Leschi high schools will attend colleges across the country.Compiled by Debbie Cafazzo and Mary Anderson, staff writers
