“People achieve what they believe they can. We want ALL students to be aware of the opportunities college affords and believe that with hard work comes great reward. We know that the future success of these students will depend on some type of postsecondary education whether that is college, technical school, or military and it is our job to prepare them.” Christina McKinney
