The Cornell Cohort Heads South and East

They were instructed to be in front of El Cerrito HS at 3:50 to receive last minute instructions for their departure to Cornell.  To a one, though, they all arrived early.  If they’ve learned nothing else from their association with the ILC they’ve learned the value of being on time.

The six members of the Cornell cohort are heading east but they’re detouring south before landing in Ithaca, NY.  They’re first going to Atlanta where they’ll tour Emory University.  From there they head to Washington, DC to visit Georgetown and then to Philadelphia to say hello to Ben Franklin while touring UPenn.

Finally, they’ll head north to Ithaca where they’ll embark on their adventures at Cornell.

This is the first of the six ILC cohorts for 2015 and, as can be seen from the photos, they’re ready.

  1. Don, I want to thank you personally for your dedication to these fabulous students. The wonder and excitement in these blogs speaks volumes. What a rare opportunity this is for them! The many, many hours you put in (unpaid--and sadly, too often unsung) to make sure this extremely valuable program runs smoothly, motivated only by your love for our kids and your devotion to the WCCUSD, are not going unnoticed or unappreciated. You are a true hero.
