Quad Cities Station Supports Students in College Preparation

 

Tuesday, Jan. 23, a group of 40 8th grade students visited Quad Cities Station from Edison Jr. High School in Rock Island. The students are part of the school's Advancement via Individual Determination (AVID) program with a mission to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.

The visit included a panel discussion with station employees Jeremiah Haas, Brandy Donaldson, Zach Bundies, Sarah Mongreig and Rafael Possamai. The students also had lunch at the station and received a tour of the Unit 1 Control Room Simulator at the station's Professional Learning Center.

Similarly, Quad Cities introduced students in One by One of East Moline School District, a program for students who would be the first in their families to attend college, to nuclear energy. The program was a great success for many students grades 8 through 12 who were mentored. "I'm proud and honored to continue Quad Cities Station's engagement with One by One by serving as one of the program's career mentors, visiting with students monthly in their classroom alongside many other area professionals. This program truly is changing lives, one mentor and one mentee at a time," says site communicator, Brandy Donaldson.​
