Hanford, CA (PRWEB) May 08, 2013
Keller Motors was recently a Bronze Level Sponsor of the 2nd Annual COS Puente Project Cinco De Mayo 5K Run/2K Walk that was held on Saturday, May 4, 2013. The Cinco de Mayo run/walk took place at the College of the Sequoias track located at the Visalia Campus. The Visalia campus is located at 915 S. Mooney Blvd. There was also a Health Fair in the COS Quad in conjunction with the race. Awards for the participants were handed out at the end of the race in the Quad as well.
Since 1996, the Puente Project has offered scholarships and support to the students of the College of the Sequoias. These scholarships help students that otherwise would not be able to afford college and most likely would not graduate. Students of the Puente Project have created a 10 percent increase in student retention in comparison to other similar groups. The program offers accelerated instruction in English, academic counseling, mentoring from the campus and community and leadership development. Through this program Puente students transferring to four-year universities has increased at rates one and a half times higher than COS students overall. Through events like the Cinco de Mayo run/walk, the Puente Project can raise the needed funds to provide these scholarships.
