Tyson Foods donated $250 to fund the We Can Summer Program hosted by UA Cossatot’s Center for Student Success.

Tyson Foods Complex Human Resource Manager Donna Duggan presented the check to UA Cossatot Development Coordinator Dustin Roberts.

The We Can Summer Program is a three-day course for area high school sophomores and juniors. The program will begin in June 2018 at De Queen and Nashville UA Cossatot campuses.

The program’s focus is to inspire future minority leaders of Southwest Arkansas by providing support that will encourage more students to attend college after high school.

UA Cossatot Center for Student Success Coordinator Erika Buenrrostro said, “Tyson Foods has supported many of our programs for years. Their donation will provide mentorship, help students learn how to market themselves, and prepare them for college.”
