The merits of Beloit's Porter Scholar program were touted in a recent Beloit Daily News article.
In "Porter scholars reflect on experiences" published on Nov. 24, Beloit Memorial High School senior Mike Cummins told reporter Geoff Bruce, “It gives you the experience of college when you’re in high school.
