Personal Statement: For more than 20 years, I have worked closely with individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds who have the desire to further their education and earn a college degree. Many students do not follow a traditional educational path or foresee obstacles or barriers which may stand in the way of achieving their educational goals. I know that NEO and it adult education program and New Vistas High School provides alternatives by giving support, guidance and educational opportunities to those students to achieve their dream. I am proud to be part of this organization.
