What is one thing that you need/want from a community right now?

I would like to find a female mentor working in higher education administration or college access programming.

What kind of civic connection are you interested in making?

Connections to organizations that have an interest in collaborating with the two federal DOE TRiO Talent Search grants that I direct. Organizations with an interest in first-generation, low-income, and minority college students; organizations seeking student volunteers, interns, employees; organizations interested in working with students and families from Vancouver's 4th Plain District; organizations that offer services, support, or aid to at-risk student populations and communities in poverty.
