Bryan High School holds first annual Upward Bound Returning Student Orientation
Andrea Padilla-Rosas (director) and Kari D’Angelo (coordinator)
AIM TRiO Upward Bound at Bryan High School held their first annual Upward Bound Returning Student Orientation on Wednesday, September 5, 2018. They had a great turn out with students and families in the library at Bryan.
Eighteen students and 21 family members enjoyed dinner catered by Sam’s Leon Mexican Restaurant and learned more about the program and the calendar of events planned for the school year. The surprise announcement was the destination of our Spring Break College Trip: Oklahoma and Texas! The students (and parents) are excited about it!
In addition to getting the school year up and running, Andrea Padilla-Rosas (director) and Kari D’Angelo (coordinator) have been recruiting students to fill the spaces that the 2018 graduating seniors vacated. They’ve had an increase in interest simply by word of mouth—referrals from current AIM Upward Bound students. Their Bryan UB students are their best recruiters.
The next items on the calendar are the UNO/EducationQuest College Fair at UNO on Sunday, September 23 and UNL College Access Day on Wednesday, October 3.
