Local high school students attend Bear Partnership program
Bear Partnership provides resources to students from underrepresented backgrounds. It’s housed in the College of Education at Missouri State University.
Students who attend the week-long program explore what a career in education looks like. The program also focuses on easing the transition from high school to college.
Throughout the week, students:
• Practiced for the ACT.
• Learned about admissions and financial aid.
• Explored job opportunities, clubs and organizations on campus.
• Immersed themselves in the Springfield community.
