This summer, C.W. Suter participated in the Trio Upward Bound Program, sponsored by Western Iowa Tech. The students in this program spent time at Suter, job shadowing and learning more about what we do as a company.
Initiated in 1965, Upward Bound is a federal pre-college program designed to help selected students complete high school, enter and succeed in post-secondary education.
Upward Bound offers extensive academic instruction as well as counseling, mentoring, career search, financial aid search, and other support services. Students meet throughout the school year and participate in an intensive residential summer program at WITCC for six weeks. Students generally participate from their ninth grade year through their senior year of high school.
