Reed-Custer High School senior, Kasey Davalos was selected by Reed College in Portland, Oregon to take part in their upcoming ROME Fall Program. ROME is Reed Overnight Multicultural Experience which invites a highly qualified group of high school seniors from around the US to campus for a three-day, two-night exploration of Reed and the City of Portland.
ROME students stay in residence halls with current students and follow a program of classroom visits and student-professor engagement opportunities. Just ten minutes from downtown Portland, Reed also arranges trips to explore highlights of the city. All travel is arranged and paid for by the college (including flights to and from Portland). The trip will take place November 5-7. Kasey is considering Reed College for Fall 2016. Congratulations Kasey!
