NewsMarlboro College Hosts Inner-City Boston Students
Marlboro, VT. (Feb. 5, 2007)- On Wednesday February 7, Marlboro College will host 13 students from East Boston High School as part of the Foundation for Excellence in Schools’ College Awareness Program.
The program shows inner-city teenagers what it is like to pursue higher education.
”They’ve already faced a variety of challenges in their lives that make it difficult to consider college,” said program director Tom Yahn. “We have found all they need is someone to care about them.”
The students will arrive around 11 AM and spend the day with multiple Marlboro professors and students. They’ll experience a variety of classes including Global Warming, Potting With Greg, Kitchen Chemistry and Constructing Realities.
At 2 PM the students will also have the opportunity to talk with one of Marlboro’s admissions representatives and discuss the process of applying to college and obtaining financial aid.
Students from Twin Valley High School in Wilmington, Vermont are hosting the Boston students and will also be in attendance.
