Compass 2 Campus celebrated at brunch

A fundraising and celebration brunch was held at Western Sunday, May 17, to benefit the nationally recognized and award-winning Compass 2 Campus program at Western Washington University.

Compass 2 Campus, a proactive effort that sends trained WWU student mentors into schools, is in its fifth year at Western. The program offers academic mentoring in areas that lack funding in the elementary, middle and high schools throughout Whatcom and Skagit counties. The goal is to establish a connection between schools lacking funds and college students to increase graduations rates and inspire students to further their education.
