Local participating institutions include Aquinas College, Calvin College, Davenport University, Ferris State University, Grand Rapids Community College, Grand Valley State University, Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University, Montcalm Community College and Western Michigan University.
Dr. Pink visited Ottawa Hills High School last week to meet the students who are participating in the Early/Middle College program. He told students in GRCC adjunct instructor John Beadling’s American Government class about the importance of making a plan to get into college, to pay for college and to stay in college. He emphasized the need for students to apply for grants and scholarships to assist with paying for college, and encouraged them to follow their passion to a career that will be meaningful and pay the bills.
