Jake Myers is a College Persistence Officer with Delaware College Scholars. He maintains regular contact with all scholars in college - celebrating their accomplishments, helping to troubleshoot obstacles and documenting their progress on the way to successful graduation. We asked him eleven questions to learn more about him and his role with DCS.
We are off to a fast start to the third year of the Delaware College Scholars Program!
The week was filled with excitement and emotions as we welcomed the return of Cohort 2 and said hello to our new Cohort 3 scholars. At the same time, DCS bid farewell to our pioneer group of Cohort 1 graduates. The graduation for Cohort 1 was an amazing experience – we will highlight all of the festivities in a separate newsletter to give it the attention and detail that Cohort 1 deserves. But for this first newsletter of 2016, we would just like to give a quick update on our first week.
Delaware College Scholars was featured on a segment on the PBS (WHYY) TV Show "First." The piece introduced the wider Delaware community to the great work that the scholars do during the summer and the big picture vision of the program.
St. Andrews School in Middletown, Delaware looks like something out of a postcard--from its stone archways to its Gothic cloisters to the carpets of green grass that checker the more-than 2000 acre campus.
