Sean Gilmore: What does TRIO mean to you?
“TRIO helped me to advance my knowledge, gain useful skills, and make long-lasting relationships. As a first-generation college student, Talent Search supported me by helping me access a college education. I was granted opportunities to go on college visits and educational trips as well as provided assistance for tests like the ACT. Some of my favorite memories are from the TRIO trips I participated in.
When I attended college, SES and McNair assisted me by providing supportive advisors, printing, computer access, and tutoring when needed. McNair allowed me to pursue my own independent research and offered graduate school application support. Poverty should not be a hindrance to higher education and TRIO ensures students have access to learning and professional networking. I can truly say that I would not be where I am today without the help of TRIO.”
