Harrison, MI October 25, 2016 – Mid Michigan Community College is excited to announce that its Educational Talent Search (ETS) Program has received renewed funding for the next 5 years in the amount of $239, 981 annually, an increase of nearly $10,000 from the initial five year grant. MMCC’s ETS Program supports middle and high school students who meet federal income guidelines or are potential first generation college students. The program works intensively with students to prepare them for success in college.

“The ETS program supports students who want to make their college dreams a reality, and so we’re really happy to see how many honor students are taking advantage of the opportunities that it provides,” says ETS Program Director Marilee Kujat.

Nine local 2016 high school graduates who participated in ETS are now attending the University of Michigan with scholarships covering all of their tuition costs – just one example of how ETS is impacting student success. This past summer, ETS visited nine colleges, large and small and as far away as Michigan Tech, allowing local high school students to experience different college settings around the state. In partnership with the Clare-Gladwin RESD, local middle school students explored career options, took advantage of cultural experiences, and visited Mackinac Island. ETS also provided its participants with ACT and SAT test prep supplies and study sessions.
