Upward Bound Program

Upward Bound provides fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in pre-college performance and ultimately in higher education pursuits. Upward Bound serves high school students from low-income families, high school students from families in which neither parent holds a bachelors degree, and low-income, first-generation military veterans who are preparing to enter postsecondary education.

Stellar Student: Sandra Godinez

Upward Bound would like to recognize Sandra Godinez as this month’s Stellar Students. Sandra has been with Upward Bound since the 9th grade. She has demonstrated commitment to our program by having excellent Saturday attendance, having only missed a couple of Saturday’s due to school activities. Sandra is extremely motivated and all of her hard work is starting to pay off as she just got accepted into one of the most challenging UC schools! Sandra will be attending the University of California, San Diego during the Fall 2017! We are extremely proud of her and all of her accomplishments! We know that this is only the beginning for her and she will continue to excel at everything that she sets out to do!
