Latino Outreach introduces students to college

Richland–About 50 middle and elementary school students will be on the Washington State University Tri-Cities campus Friday, March 23, for the Latino Outreach “I’m Ready for College” program.

The WSU Tri-Cities Latino Outreach program educates young students on the importance of getting a college education while making them aware of what it takes to go to college— from academic expectations to financial aid resources.

This winter’s Latino Outreach program was held after school at Stevens Middle School in Pasco and Artz-Fox Elementary School in Mabton. About 25 students from each school are being recognized Friday for their completion of the “I’m Ready for College” program.

The students arrive on campus at 8:45 a.m. with the program starting at 9 a.m. in the East Building Auditorium. The agenda includes a campus tour and educational workshops with WSU Tri-Cities faculty and staff — like “Chemical Magic of Color” and “Show Me the Money” — designed to provide students with a real-life college experience. The concluding session, “College Bingo,” is from 1:20 to 1:40 p.m. in the Auditorium.
