TRIO Upward Bound Program Empowers Students to Attend College

Upward Bound is a federally-funded TRiO Program. TRiO is a collection of seven educational opportunity programs funded by the United States Department of Education. The purpose of the Upward Bound Program is to assist students in developing the skills and motivation necessary to complete secondary education and to enroll and successfully complete a program of postsecondary education.

The program is funded to serve 50 high school students from Central, Hillcrest, and Parkview High Schools in the Springfield Public School District.

Kate O'Brien, Upward Bound program coordinator, and Cassie Walters, a senior at Central High School in Springfield, discuss the program.
