2015 Pipeline Program Reading

This Summer, we will be reading award winning author Sherman Alexie’s The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian!

I can personally vouch for this book – it is very funny, easy to read, and includes hilarious sketches to bring Alexie’s story alive.

Parents, as you are aware, your student needs to read the few scanned chapters BEFORE they come. Please help them and make sure they do their reading before coming to the Program! #Don’tfallbehind #summerreading #ShermanAlexie #goodscholar

Dear Potential Pipeline Parents/Guardians, Students & Mentors,

First, we would like to thank you for your patience in navigating and successfully using our new application process for the 2015 Pipeline Program session.

Today, Pipeline Program Board Members met to decide on student/mentor acceptances. Due to the large number of very-qualified and strong applications we received, the Board was only able to decide on half of them during the meeting time. The Board is dedicated to reviewing and deciding upon the rest of the applications for the next two days.

Final decisions should be reached on Friday, by which we will send out announcements to everyone. So thank you for bearing with us just a few more days so we can make the best decisions possible.

Thank you,

The Pipeline Program Board &

Scott Scoggins, Pipeline Program Director
