The College of Education and Human Development is proud to announce many wonderful activities, events and success of our TRiO Future Educator Success Program.  Listed below are a few recent accomplishments to acknowledge:

  • TRiO student Audreanna Shannon is a MI-CAPP Scholarship Award Winner this year and will attend an award ceremony in Grand Rapids this February.
  • TRiO FESP is working with the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Kalamazoo to create a facilitated pilot program in the summer for 25 middle school students.  It will assist the students in maintaining or raising math and literacy success and will teach job readiness skills.  TRiO FESP students will be paid for their summer employment funded through a grant from the Greg Jennings Foundation.
  • Nine TRiO FESP students graduated in December of 2013 and 28 made the Dean’s List for the fall 2013 semester.
