TRIO-SSS Program Guides GCU Students on the Road to Success

triologo

Students who want to pursue a college education sometimes have added obstacles to overcome. They may be the first in their family to go to college and have no role models or mentors to guide them. They may have a disability or limited financial resources for the cost of education.

Job #1—Success

Participants in the Georgian Court University TRIO-Student Support Services (SSS) program face these types of challenges but persevere and forge ahead. Nicole Hoagland, TRIO-SSS participant, recently met her challenges head-on by applying for and winning $500 Student Access Scholarship. The scholarship, awarded by a scholarship outreach program of Heiberg Consulting Inc., was brought to Hoagland’s attention by the staff of the TRIO-SSS program.

Nicole Hoagland_Scholar“Nicole is a very enthusiastic and active participant of the program,” said Debbie D’Agostaro, TRIO-SSS staff assistant. “She’s a good student with a GPA over 3.0. She is a biology major with a minor in chemistry whose long-term goal is to become a physician. We were very happy to see such a deserving student win this scholarship.”

A second TRIO-SSS student, Jeri Brandt, was recently awarded a scholarship from the Northern New Jersey Black Nurses Association. TRIO-SSS staff were instrumental in helping her to successfully apply for the scholarship. “Wherever we can find the opportunities, we help our students. The goal is to do everything we can to help them graduate,” said Ms. D’Agostaro.
