Applications are being taken for the Main Street Transformer program during the month of September. The program is open to high school freshmen and sophomores who want to take part in learning more about themselves and their community. The application reads, “Our goal is for this program to be an early tool in your quest for college. We hope through it you can better know who you are, what you are interested in, who you can become, and what leadership qualities you have to offer to the world.”
Applicants need to have a passing grade point average to apply. No more than ten students will be chosen.
The group meets one Saturday morning a month. The first meeting of the year, we discuss what is expected of the group and the students decide what they would like to get from the program. Last year the years program included visiting Alabaster Caverns in Freedom, the Air Museum in Liberal and doing many community projects.
