BOTHELL, Wash. – The University of Washington Bothell’s Dream Project is a student-initiated high school outreach program that partners UW Bothell students with first-generation and low-income high school students to help them achieve their dreams of attending college.  To celebrate the first group of students to finish the program, the Dream project is hosting 12 Months of Dreaming. 12 Months of Dreaming will provide UW Bothell and the community-at-large an opportunity to hear about the achievements of the students that have been served by the Dream Project.  There will also be a report on what the Dream Project has accomplished over the past year and what their hopes are for the future.
Join the Dream Project for this engaging presentation on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. in the North Creek Events Center on the UW Bothell campus.  The event is free and open to the public.
