While I was having a little fun in the sun and trying to launch a book, I got a call that left me speechless. I was selected as a recipient of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Angel Award. I was ecstatic, shocked, and extremely grateful for the recognition. I have been an advocate for equitable student success since I was a student. However, I never thought that my work would be recognized like this.
I addition to the award, I received a grant for College Beyond to progress our work with students from low-income homes to help them complete college.
