The National TRIO Alumni Association is pleased to feature Anthony Webster as our FACES of TRIO of the week! Anthony is a proud Program Director of TRIO Student Support Services at Eastern Michigan University (EIU) and an alumnus of the Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program at Jackson State University. Anthony obtained his Bachelor of Science in psychology at Jackson State University, Master of Arts in higher education and student affairs, and is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in educational leadership and policy studies at Wayne State University.

When asked why TRIO was meaningful to him, he explained:
I am forever indebted to Jackson State University and the McNair Scholars Program because they taught me how to dream in action. As a young boy growing up in the Mississippi Delta, I always thought about what life would be like to travel and see the world. Although I attended college only two hours away, my life was forever changed because of this decision.

Entering college as a first-generation/ low-income student posed many challenges. However, the resources available to me as a student helped me overcome some of my worst days and taught me how to think and leverage my network to drive change strategically. I remember, like yesterday, sitting across from the McNair Scholars Program director, Dr. Brown, and her asking questions about my goals and future. As intimidating as that was to then 20-year-old me, I knew she and the program staff not only cared but were willing to invest in me.

Learning to love learning is the gift that I received during my time in the program. I am grateful for it and would not be the scholar I am today had it not been for TRIO.

Congratulations, Anthony!

Upward Bound, Alumna, Viola Davis credits #TRIO in her new memoir, "Finding Me Is a Story of a Woman Who Has Always Fought for More."

His name was Ron Stetson and he was, she writes, “the coolest, most handsome, unique, dynamic individual I had ever met. He drove a beat-up car that had no door on the passenger side. Way cool. He put a sheet of plastic in its place so you wouldn’t fall out or get wet from the rain.” Stetson and the other instructors in the program changed Davis’ life: “They blew a hole in my world and opened up a new space that I could occupy.”

The National TRIO Alumni Association is pleased to recognize Alumna Dr. Kimberly Rachaun Morton, Director of TRIO: Student Support Services and Professor at the Washington University in St. Louis, on her appointment as City Council Woman of City of Jennings, MO!

"My TRIO experience was absolutely amazing. Working with our advisor was pivotal to my academic growth. I enjoyed the time that I had with my peers at the University of Northern Iowa, in fact I met six of my best friends and we are still best friends today. Four of us were in the Obama Administration. The fact that we were in the same Upward Bound program and worked for the First Black President of the United States is a testament to our commitment to communities and public service."

Congratulations, Dr. Morton!

Congratulations to Genesis Santos on her acceptance into the Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program at Baylor University!

#futurealumni #5millionstrong #McNair

Students recently accepted into McNair?
Let us know today!

"Dr. Santos, PhD coming soon! 👩🏽‍🏫✨ I’m excited to announce that I’m OFFICIALLY a McNair Scholar! The competitive, rigorous Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program provides opportunities for underrepresented undergraduate students to gain the knowledge and skills needed for graduate school, specifically for a PhD program. This wouldn’t be possible without the support of my many loved ones and educators. Despite the imposter syndrome, anxiety, and discouragement I’ve faced, I’ll continue to be resilient and advocate for higher education attainment among underrepresented communities.

The National TRIO Alumni Association is pleased to feature Brandon Isahack as our FACES of TRIO of the week! Brandon is a proud Program Coordinator at Florida International University (FIU) and an alumnus of Student Support Services at Florida State University. Brandon obtained his bachelor's and master's of science in health services administration from FIU and is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in public affairs.

When asked why TRIO was meaningful to him, he explained:

TRIO's Student Support Services Program was a large part of my success as a first-generation student. I did not know how to properly navigate completing my degree or understand which direction I wanted to pursue.

I then met Dr. Jeannette Cruz, the director of SSS, and from there she provided direction and placed me on the path to graduation. Her team, along with Moira Lertora, made the journey feasible and I am not sure if I would have graduated on time without them. Others in the program were great to network with and there were fun volunteering options that occurred periodically.

All in all, this program was paramount to my finishing my undergraduate degree and provided the blueprint to become a lifelong learner.

Congratulations, Brandon!

General information

The National TRIO Alumni Association activates communities of heroes to inspire even the most disadvantaged American to experience transformation through higher education. Since 1965, students have been graduating from college because their country invested in their futures – through grants, loans and work-study programs. But at the same time, America made another key decision: to invest in the people and programs that would help low-income and first-generation students to: • Learn about, • Aspire to, • Prepare for, • Enroll and • Graduate from College.

hello
Hello National TRIO Alumni! I am currently working on final research for the dissertation in my EdD program. I am a proud Upward Bound alumnae and have focused my research on increasing the general body of knowledge in regard to information available on what works for low-income, first-generation students. The goal of this research is to develop a set of best practices for postsecondary students who may identify as low-income and/or first-generation that increases GPA, retention, and graduation as well as a theory in support of these practices. However, to do this I need a robust set of qualitative data and I need your help! If you were a low-income, first-generation student or think some of your program’s alumni would be willing to participate, I encourage you to use the link below. https://form.jotform.com/212695750083156 Participation is entirely voluntary and no compensation, other than my gratitude, will be provided. If you would like to participate, please complete the survey no later than end of day on Friday, October 22nd.
This is Chicha. He is a Pace U. Upward Bound alum. He worked with intellectually disabled New Yorkers to save his grandmother's house from foreclosure during the pandemic. Read his story, "Chicha's 2nd Chance at College" at Go Fund Me https://gofund.me/cfc3c67b
