Dear Potential and Current Pipeline Families and Students,
We have some very exciting news! Thanks to the generosity of Gloria Gold, we will be able to have another week for the Pipeline Program, making it into a 2-week program! Ms. Gold made a monetary donation that has enabled us to fund another week of the Pipeline Program after seeing the great work that the Pipeline program has done, and continues to do, with our Native youth. We would also like to thank other people who have contributed their time, talents, and vision to making the Pipeline Program a success: former Dean Alan Jones who believed in the vision of the Pipeline Program; Robertjohn Knapp for inspiring and starting the first pipeline session; Julia Bogany for helping contribute her time and energy to the kids, Rob Fossum for allowing us housing for the program; Gina Lamb for her tireless efforts in creating media projects for the kids; Dr. Elizabeth Rega for helping bridge the Pipeline with Western University; Erich Steinman for supporting the program from Day one, Tessa Hicks Peterson, Dean Muriel Poston, Adrian Stevens, Gayle Anne Kelley, and everyone else who has made this program the best it can be.
The Pipeline program also wouldn’t have been the same with our wonderful mentors, and most importantly, the students and families who decided to take a chance with our program. We wouldn’t be the Pipeline Program today if it wasn’t for your participation, and we look forward to accepting the new members of the Pipeline family.
