Harper College Promise Scholarship

  • A scholarship offered to every student in Harper's district that would fund up to two years of college.

Frustrated at his previous job, Drew Kong decided to go back to college. Today, the new graduate of Harper College's Fast Track program boasts four supply chain management certificates and a full-time position with a leading global security provider.

When Harper College opened its doors 50 years ago, it created a steady pipeline of graduates – nurses in particular – who have gone on to provide high-quality, community-focused care at Northwest Community Healthcare. The Harper College Educational Foundation recently recognized about 50 of those alumni during a reception at NCH through its Stand Up and Be Counted program, an initiative that celebrates area employers that hire Harper alumni.

Harper's graphic arts program recently hosted a Print Expo introducing area high school students to career opportunities in the field. About 120 high school students visited with a variety of print professionals including suppliers, manufacturers, printing and finishing companies, professional organizations and four-year colleges and universities.
