MARCH ACADEMY HIGHLIGHTS
All the students learned about TRIO programs in the South Plains area that prepare students for college success during a TRIO Day luncheon. Armida Rosiles, PhD., inspired the students by telling them of how Upward Bound prepared and motivated her to complete her Bachelors, Masters, and Doctoral degrees.
Seniors participated in workshops about college admissions, financial aid and testing sponsored by the GO Center at SPC. Three of the seniors gave wonderful presentations that explained the purpose of Upward Bound and how it has impacted them personally. Thank you for doing such a great job!
Freshmen, sophomores and juniors completed on-line activities to improve study strategies, explore career interests. They also continued preparing for the upcoming TAKS by completing practice questions with the help of tutors.
