DCCO is mentoring with South High School in Columbus, which was named Diplomas Now High School of the Year last summer. As part of the program, 9th graders are assigned to teams named after Ivy League schools – and the Dartmouth squad is the best one (of course)! DCCO members have enjoyed getting to know these inner-city students and are excited to be part of this meaningful program throughout the year.
