Kearney shares summer mornings with high school students from Reedley College Upward Bound Math and Science program.
The last two weeks of June were filled with the activity of high school students brought from Reedley College for experiential learning about math and science in agriculture. Kearney has played a part in Upward Bound for several years, hosting a portion of the student workshops for two weeks each June. The program is described on the Reedley College Upward Bound website:
The Reedley College Upward Bound Programs are highly successful, precollege programs for predominately low-income and first generation college bound high school students. …The general purpose of Upward Bound is to generate excitement and increase the rates of college enrollment among high school students.
Partnering with Upward Bound is an important part of the strong Outreach Program at Kearney. Please enjoy the following pictures of some of the 2019 summer learning and fun.
