Part of accepting the job in Peoria was to try to help students like myself- smart enough to attend, poor enough not be able to pay for it, and gritty enough to hang in there. As Magnet Director of Guilford County Schools, students for the middle college program were selected because of at risk factors- and first gen ranked high on the list. Urban areas with higher eduction sites, like Peoria, need successful model partnerships like the Early College at Bennett College which aim to help students complete high school and earn college credit. I so much wanted to start one at Bradley University!
