Upward Bound Wins TRiO Competion

Upward Bound Wins TRiO Competion

Alvin Community College Upward Bound took first place at the annual TRiO Field Day on June 20 at the Texas Southern University campus.

This is 10th consecutive win for the ACC Upward Bound team.

“This year our students worked hard to uphold an ACC Upward Bound tradition of winning,” Director Regan Metoyer said. “I am beyond proud of them.  These students work hard year round and it has paid off.”

The competition included Upward Bound programs from Texas Southern University, Galveston College, University of Houston-Downtown and College of the Mainland. 

The schools competed in several activities including math, science, athletics and dance.

Upward Bound seeks to motivate low-income and/or potential first-generation college students and help them develop the skills they need to complete secondary education and succeed at the postsecondary educational institution of their choice. The purpose of the program is to build confidence and self-esteem, while providing the necessary tools and guidance to foster academic success.
