About Possible Dream

In 1992, Delta College established the Possible Dream Program. Its mission is to make the "dream" of college a reality for bright but economically disadvantaged students in the Great Lakes Bay Region (Bay, Midland and Saginaw Counties). If we can help these students reach college, they will be able to fulfill other dreams and goals.

The Possible Dream Program began with 45 students and has since expanded to include up to 100 new students who enter the program each year.  Since inception, the program has helped more than 2,300 students!

    Possible Dream success story

    Dr. Adam Cloutier is a Possible Dream success story.  He graduated from the program in 2002.  He is currently Deans of Arts & Sciences at Lakeland Community College in Kirtland Ohio.

    “The Possible Dream Program provided the opportunity to have a future. As a young boy, I was going to either join the military or receive a scholarship that would allow me the opportunity to afford to attend college. Although the military would have been fine, I wanted to go to college and be a doctor of sorts. Thanks to the Possible Dream Program, I was able to attend Delta College, begin my academic life, and I did become a doctor. Not the one I originally thought, but a doctor nonetheless.”

    Adam has come back to the Great Lakes Bay Region to attend A Chocolate Affair on several occasions. Shown in the photo is, left to right, Dr. Adam and Erin Cloutier and Dr. Jean Goodnow, President of Delta College at the 2017 event.

"I’ve been involved with the Possible Dream Program since middle school, and to think it would aid me even after graduation is astonishing. I’ve learned so much and have had the chance to attend so many special events through the program, and hope someday I can help those dreams come true for someone else."
