August 8, 2014

WHO:

H.O.P.E. scholarship recipients (grades 7-12) and parents.

WHAT:

Annual Leadership Academy, for students in the H.O.P.E. scholarship program, hosted by Lansing Community College (LCC). During the Academy, students will participate in activities around:

  • Public Service Careers
  • Fashion Technology
  • Residential Building Trades
  • Energy Management
  • Digital Innovation for Arts

The H.O.P.E. Scholarship Program is a crime prevention and education initiative in cooperation with the Lansing Police Department, Lansing Community College, Michigan State University, Lansing School District, the City of Lansing, local businesses and private citizens. Students promise to finish high school in exchange for two free years of tuition at Lansing Community College. The students are chosen by their school based on the ability to utilize the program.

WHEN:

Friday, August 8, 2014; 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

WHERE:

The Academy will be held at LCC’s West Campus in conference rooms M119-M122.

WHY:

The program was developed in response to the idea that if more students are given a clear pathway to higher education, it will produce safer schools, contribute to higher graduation rates, reduce crime, and prepare students for the good-paying jobs of the 21st Century. Recent experience has shown that more than 90 percent of the students entering the HOPE Scholarship program will graduate from high school – and on time.
