Feather River'Bulletin Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2010 3A The United States Depart- ment of Education has grant- ed Feather River College per- mission to replace the Up- ward Bound summer residen- tial component with a day program. Director Louise Biggs as- sured participants they will continue to enjoy a summer program which blends the best of learning and fun. The six-week program will retain many of the partici- pants' favorite activities, in- cluding an overnight leader- ship workshop, field trips and of course the college and cul- tural tour in the FRC bus. Participants enrolled in the 2010 summer program will be- gin their experience unpack- ing their bags at Greenhorn Guest Ranch. They will chal- lenge themselves for two days and nights in equestrian lead- ership while enjoying typical ranch activities. There will be four solid weeks of Upward Bound cur- riculum Monday through Thursday: math, literature, composition, foreign lan- guage and lab science mixed with career and college counseling. Participants will also hear a series of guest speakers and watch videos challenging them to "Claim their Fu- tures." New this year is a se- nior seminar. Rising seniors will be al- lowed to enroll in one online course and attend one senior seminar course designed to fit the college-bound senior. The "Hope Grows Where Your Money Goes," is the theme of a consumer ethics forum March 1, hosted by Feather River College Students In Free Enterprise at 6:30 p.m. in the Plumas County Library in Quincy. The free event will feature experts in the commu- nity in the areas of shopping locally and fair trade, Topics will include the im- pact of shopping locally to strengthen a sustainable economy and how buying fair trade helps to alleviate global poverty. Carrie Hawthorne, execu- tive director of Partners for Just Trade, will discuss the history of fair trade and how to find fair trade products. Julie Hatzell, owner of Alley Cat CafG is also a fair trade advocate. FRC SIFE members were especially impressed when Hawthorne spoke to the class last fall.
