Grand Valley leaders, during a luncheon May 12, officially welcomed to the Laker family the newest cohort of students from Battle Creek Public Schools who earned pipeline scholarships.
Seventeen Battle Creek Central High School students earned the BCPS Health and Teacher Education Pipeline Scholarships. They are the second cohort to receive scholarships from this program.
In 2019, Grand Valley received a $15.5 million grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to partner with BCPS and transform education in the district. Funding for the scholarship program comes from WKKF as additional support for students.
At the luncheon, held at Battle Creek Central High School, Jean Nagelkerk, vice provost for health, told students they will be set up for success through Grand Valley's resources and services.
