Detroit school students learn about the future of college success at 8th grade ceremony 

At their eighth-grade promotion ceremony June 3, students at Detroit Achievement Academy learned they qualify for a new pilot program at Grand Valley designed to encourage college enrollment and assist with their success upon admission.

B. Donta Truss, vice president for Enrollment Development and Educational Outreach, made the surprise announcement at DAA’s promotion ceremony on Belle Isle, where students and their families heard first-hand about the entry and success program.
