Blinn Doing Its BEST to Recruit HS Students

Blinn College is trying its BEST to help high school students ease into college.

Officials at Blinn College in Brenham on Thursday announced a partnership with area high schools designed to increase the high schools' college enrollment rate.

Building Educational Success Together is a new program that includes Bellville, Brenham, Brookshire-Royal, Bryan, Caldwell, Giddings, La Grange, Navasota, Sealy and Schulenburg.

The BEST program will offer students an opportunity to have regular communication with Blinn faculty and staff and offer awareness of events and activities hosted on Blinn campuses.

Among other agreements, Blinn will provide the schools with an annual enrollment report of their former students and present an orientation program for high school sophomores and juniors seeking to enroll in college classes.
