Look Ahead Lakers Program Begins March 24

February 10, 2011

Silver Lake College will host over one hundred fifth graders on Thursday, March 24, as they kick off their new Look Ahead Lakers program.  The Look Ahead Lakers program, modeled after UW-GB’s Phuture Phoenix program, is designed to give fifth grade students from low-income families a peek into higher education—an opportunity that many of these students would otherwise never consider.

The Look Ahead Lakers program is funded by the Wisconsin College Access Challenge Grant. Both UW- Green Bay and Silver Lake College are receiving support from the two-year grant from the U.S. Department of Education, administered by Great Lakes Higher Education Guaranty Corporation.

On March 24, 120 fifth graders from Jefferson and Franklin elementary schools will come to Silver Lake to be introduced to college life.  About thirty Silver Lake College students will serve as mentors in the program.  After meeting their mentors, the fifth graders will take a tour of Silver Lake College, and then will participate in actual college classes with their mentors.

After March 24th, Silver Lake students will follow up with their assigned students at their own schools, providing ongoing tutoring and academic support.  The hope is that these on-going relationships will help the less privileged students to consider pursuing higher education some day.

“The Look Ahead Lakers program is a wonderful opportunity for the youth in our community.  It will provide students with positive role models, an opportunity to experience college, and the necessary information and skills needed to enroll in a post-secondary school, making higher education much more attainable.  We are confident that the program will inspire students to dream big and pursue their dreams with higher education, regardless of their background,” says Look Ahead Lakers Program Coordinator, Tara Wachowski.

For more information about the Look Ahead Lakers program, please contact Tara at, or (920) 686-6217.


Poet Derrick Harriell to read at SLC on March 15

February 8, 2011

On Tuesday, March 15, Derrick Harriell will give a reading at Silver Lake College. Harriell will read poems from his recently released book, Cotton, at noon in the Grand Lounge. The event, sponsored by the college’s English program, is free and open to the public.

Derrick Harriell, a native of Milwaukee, holds an MFA from Chicago State University. Harriell is currently a dissertator at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee where he teaches creative writing and serves as Poetry Editor for Cream City Review.

Maurice Kilwein Guevara, author of Poema, has called Harriell’s Cotton a “mural in poems.” Kilwein Guevara writes, “The characters that inhabit this vivid tableau step into an active third dimension and allow us to witness the vicissitudes of their daily struggles, triumphs large and small, private desires. The community here is anchored by a specific mid-Western, African-American family which, in spite of both external and internal challenges, maintains its unity, however precarious at times.”

Harriell’s book, Cotton, is available for purchase on the poet’s website,
