The Stateline Community Foundation recently awarded Beloit College’s Office of Summer Programs $1,200 to support the participation of three local high school students in the Summer Fields program running now through July 27. The funds come from the foundation’s Community Needs Grant Program.

The students selected to benefit from the grant are Jesse Porter and Rachael Hall of Beloit Memorial High School and Rebekah Evans of Rock County Christian School.  All three live in Beloit.

Summer Fields is a three-week residential program that allows high school students to take intensive, college-level courses for credit. Porter and Evans are taking From Crime Scene to Courtroom: The CSI Effect, and Hall is taking the Creative Writing Workshop: Fish, Fowl, Flood, Water Lily, Mud: Water in the Literary Imagination.

Porter has been involved in Beloit College's Upward Bound program, and Hall has been involved in the Help Yourself Program.  In addition to the scholarships provided by the Stateline Community Foundation, these students received support from the college.
