Eighteen high school seniors from Battle Creek Public Schools were welcomed into the Laker community during a May 5 celebration for a pipeline scholars program.
The students are the fourth cohort since the program was established in 2020. Nearly 50 students have now enrolled at Grand Valley after receiving the BCPS Health and Teacher Education Pipeline Scholarship.
The scholarship program stems from a 2019 partnership among Grand Valley, Battle Creek Public Schools and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Grand Valley received a $15.5 million grant from WKKF to partner with BCPS and transform education in the district. Funding for the scholarship program comes from WKKF as additional support for students.
