From The Superintendent

In 2013 the Fremont Area Chamber announced their “Think Local” campaign.  This was a concept that targeted local business and placed an emphasis on Fremont citizens and the local workforce purchasing goods, acquiring services and locating their residence here in Fremont. K-12 Education (Public and Private) and post-secondary education (Midland University and Metropolitan Community College) were also part of the “Think Local” message.

Fremont Public Schools and Midland University recently announced a new strategic partnership that will greatly enhance our community students ability to attend and graduate from college!  To this end the two institutions have adopted a “grow your own, keep your own” initiative targeting Fremont High School and Archbishop Bergan graduates with their new Tiger to Warrior and Knight to Warrior Scholarship program.

The program is available to all Fremont High School and Archbishop Bergan graduates and provides a scholarship, renewable for four years, based on the student’s high school grade point average and their ACT score.  Additional needs-based-aid may be applied for, as well as athletic and performing arts awards.  This program, coupled with Midland’s Four Year Guarantee make obtaining a four year degree much more affordable for our Fremont graduates.

“This represents a group of potential students that Midland historically has not had much success in tapping into,” commented Merritt Nelson, Vice President for Enrollment Management and Marketing. Fremont High School graduates 320 to 350 students a year and this program provides them an opportunity to continue their education in Fremont at Midland University at a cost below that of attending other private or State colleges or the University of Nebraska.  The students have the ability to live at home, further reducing the costs associated with obtaining a four year degree.  “This program is made possible by the generous support from our local donors, partners and alumni.”

In my mind this is a game changer for our students, their families, Midland University and our community!  Fremont has continued to lag behind other similar sized communities in Nebraska when comparisons are drawn based on education attainment levels in the home. The correlation between education attainment and earning potential is very strong and this program has potential to move the needle in a very positive direction for our students, employers and community.

Fremont Public Schools has had a longstanding relationship with Midland University and has cooperated on facility use, dual credit courses and college/career exploration.  This is one more example of what can be done when we work together to make our families and community stronger!

THINK LOCAL!

GO TIGERS!  GO WARRIORS!
