Robbinsdale Cooper Alumni Assocation
Making connections for Cooper students, past, present and future.
Connecting to: Cooper High School - Cooper's Mission is "To provide a caring and vibrant community where all members are respected, we will educate students to become active, compassionate, principled critical thinkers."
Hennepin Technical College Connections are in the works. Cooper alumni are asked to encourage young people to consider going into the trades, tool and die graphic design, IT support and visual arts. The current generation of plumbers, electricians, pipe fitters, drafters, auto mechanics and welders will soon be retiring. There are plenty of opportunities in the trades profession.
Upward Bound Cooper's Upward Bound Program is through North Hennepin Community College. Alumni can assist by speaking with Cooper students on various subjects; their experience at NHCC, study habits, job interview skills, tips for suceeding in college or serving as a chaperon on a field trip. To learn more about the Upward Bound program at Cooper call Liz Iverson, Program Direction 763 488-0459 or send an email: liz.iverson@NHCC.edu
