Students at First Generation Celebration
November 8, 2019

TRIO hosted its annual First-Generation College Student celebration on Thursday to celebrate students who are the first in their immediate families to go to college.  The celebration included keynote speaker Jan Stanley, a panel of students and staff, and lunch.    

In 2017, 67 percent of SCTCC graduates were first-generation college students.   

“As a college and certainly within TRIO, first-generation students are a big part of our identity,” said TRIO Director, William Tuoy-Giel.
