James and Jacquizz Rodgers are scheduled to open the annual Kaleidoscope of Colleges and Cultures (KCC) on Saturday, April 18th with a keynote address.
KCC is an annual event designed to assist students, especially those in underrepresented groups including first-generation and low-income, to better understand what college, college academics and the college search process is all about. KCC aims for students to seriously consider college as an option after high school, regardless of where they may choose to attend. Carl Thomas, associate director of admissions for campus visits and programs, sees the altruistic nature of the program,
“We are about promoting higher education. If they come to OSU, great. If they attend a different school, great. We have achieved our goal.”
Thanks to Paul Buker, Oregonian beat writer for noticing.
Finally, the brothers Rodgers, who haven’t been around that long but are already achieving legendary status in these parts, are scheduled to be keynote speakers Saturday at OSU’s annual “Kaleidoscope of Colleges and Cultures” program that celebrates the academic and cultural atmosphere at the school. … James and little brother Quizz are true multi-taskers.
