Video: 50 Years of Upward Bound

31 Jul

Video created and produced by Upward Bound students and alumnus. All of the instructors in the video are actually TRiO alum’s. Proforma is just helping Natalie T. Washington, Delaware State TRiO – President, get the film out to TRIO. Enjoy.

As we celebrate 50 years of TRiO Upward Bound Programs – via video this summer, our students worked extremely hard to translate and communicate the social and academic impact experienced through the TRiO Upward Bound Math Science program at Delaware Tech’s Wilmington campus. Our ultimate goal is to share this tangible by-product of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Lyndon B. Johnson’s creation of the Higher Education Act with the President of the United States – the House, the Senate and anyone else who is willing to view and agree that TRiO programs work!

With the support and direction of our lobbying party, the Council for Opportunity in Education, this is our way of applying real life stories to the data – something we’re unable to do in an annual performance report.Views on YouTube are nice, but a “LIKE” will take this message further.

Viewing makes you an audience member but “LIKING” makes you a supporter. Spread the word and amplify our voice.

Please “like” and share our video with your network from now until August 11, 2014.

Thank you so much for the support.
