SSS Makes a Difference...

"The most amazing part about being in TRIO was when I got the Student of the Month award. [SSS] said I received the award because I was responsible, showed initiative, asked questions, and put energy into my learning. It really gave me the affirmation I needed to know that I was doing good in school, that I was surviving, and that it was going to be possible for me to earn my degree." - Jessica, 2nd year student
