Sun publishes article about Cornell’s first Posse

The Mount Vernon-Lisbon Sun published an article on Sept. 30, “Cornell’s first Posse kicks off the year.” 

A Posse is a group of students identified by the Posse Foundation–a national organization started in 1989 that recruits and trains student leaders who are often missed by the traditional college selection process. 

Cornell welcomed eight students to campus in the fall who are part of this program. Prior to officially getting selected for the program, they went through three different intensive interviews and took part in pre-collegiate training.
