(MURFREESBORO) — Select students from Chattanooga’s Dalewood Middle School will visit MTSU June 21-22 for their annual Building a Bridge to College summer workshop.
The nearly 20 students were rewarded for the academic achievement of being proficient in algebra and other classes, a Dalewood school official said.
Buddy Sullivan, a math teacher at Dalewood and baseball coach at Brainerd High School, brings the students annually. Sullivan is an MTSU alumnus (B.S. ’70). Alumna Ashley Williams (M.Ed. ’02), a Dalewood counselor, will be among three faculty members accompanying the group.
“It’s a chance for them to get a taste of college life for four days,” Sullivan said.
MTSU faculty, staff and Women in Science and Engineering students will provide a taste of college life through these workshops: “Connecting to Your Heritage” led by Angela Golden, specialist, information technology; “You and the Force” led by Dr. Daniel Erenso assistant professor, physics and astronomy; “WISE Chemistry” led by WISE students; and “Microscopic Investigations! CSI at MTSU” led by Dr. Kim Cleary Sadler, assistant professor, biology, and part of the MTSU Center for Environmental Education group.
The Dalewood students will stay in Beasley Hall.
