TRIO Proclamation Signing

Thursday morning, February 22, I attended the Mayor of Saipan's Proclamation Signing of the TRIO Program at the Northern Marianas College. This Program consists of (1)the Educational Talent Search (where they identify students from schools and assist them to complete financial aid applications to attend college, among other things; (2) the Upward Bound Program (where the students are tutored in English, Math, and Science and are taught other life skills; and (3)Student Support Services, which is pretty self-explanatory.

The three programs assist students who are first generation (neither their parents/guardians holds a Bachelor's Degree)and low income status to further and succeed in the post-secondary education.
