CCC&TI TRIO Meet the Staff

Nelson Mandela famously stated, “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.” The value of your education and the efforts you make to improve yourself and those around you are immeasurable and invaluable. Choosing to pursue further education and work towards your personal goals is a significant step, and we are here to support you in that journey! Every year, I am deeply moved and feel privileged to work with the students in TRIO. Our TRIO staff is eager to connect with you, build meaningful relationships, and support your personal, academic, and professional success. We strive to create a family-like, supportive atmosphere, making the TRIO Center a welcoming hub for students. Whether you’re considering joining or have already become part of TRIO, I’m thrilled and look forward to being there for you throughout your college journey at CCC&TI.
