Upward Bound community service

Email

Fifteen Upward Bound participants from schools in Pierz, Isle, Onamia, Staples-Motley, Long Prairie-Grey Eagle, Bertha-Hewitt, Nay Ah Shing and Browerville helped paint the Chalberg Theatre set of “It Runs in The Family” at Central Lakes College in Brainerd on June 8. It was part of their community service project during a six-week academic/residential experience for college preparation sponsored by CLC and the College of St. Benedict. Other students provided similar assistance to the city of Brainerd and the Brainerd Area Women’s Shelter. More than 60 students from Morrison, Mille Lacs and Todd counties are enrolled. Upward Bound provides educational services to modest-income, first-generation high school students to equip them in graduating from high school, enrolling into a college or university and completing their post secondary education.
