Welcoming a new class of City Builder Scholars
On July 1, our 2016-17 class of City Builder Scholars was introduced to Warner Pacific.
These 19 local students are equipped with a strong cohort, a clearly defined sense of purpose, and practical college success skills. They will come to college with a built-in support network, ready to engage the campus and persist through adversity. Many of our City Builder students are first-generation college scholars. Nationally, first generation college students graduate from an undergraduate program in six years at an 11% rate, or from a community college at a 4% rate.
Students who receive the City Builders scholarship ($1,500 per year) are required to attend weekly leadership training seminars throughout the summer leading up to the start of their first year at Warner Pacific College.
