Attending college is becoming more of a reality for 58 area middle school students who recently joined Delta College’s Possible Dream program.
The outdoor induction event took place October 2 on Delta’s main campus where the new members celebrated with family members. The annual event usually takes place in the spring, but it was rescheduled due to the ongoing pandemic.
“It’s all about cheering them on and welcoming them to the program,” said Lynn Hoerauf, coordinator of Possible Dream. “Their excitement is contagious and I can’t wait to see what these special individuals accomplish.”
In total, 420 students are participating in Possible Dream. The program keeps college in the forefront of students’ minds through cultural and educational activities that are offered through their senior year. The ultimate goal is for all participants to graduate from high school and go on to college, and participants are given priority consideration for a Delta College scholarship.
Possible Dream is largely funded by hundreds of community members who donate to the program and its scholarships during Delta’s annual A Chocolate Affair event. This year’s virtual event will take place November 5-11.
