Once You Are TRiO, You Are Always TRiO

Once You Are TRiO, You Are Always TRiO

For over 10 years the TRiO Student Support Services program at Heritage University has provided retention tools by offering academic and personal support to help undergraduate students be successful.  Our program offers low-income, first-generation, college students and students with disabilities; tutorial services; personal, educational and career planning; advocacy; peer mentoring; financial aid; scholarship information and guidance; as well as workshops and cultural trips.

I had the honor of starting with the program in 2005 and have continued my involvement with TRiO throughout the years.  As our students have gone through the program and graduated, I am proud to see how the program helped them so they can help others along the way.  It is exciting to see how they were helped them in their time of need and to hear their success stories.  TRiO is a program that inspires others and creates a family environment.

As I transition into my new HU position, I will never forget all the students that have made a difference in my life.  I am thrilled to see what our TRiO students will continue to accomplish!  It has been an honor to work with Student Affairs Department and the TRiO staff.
