FORT WORTH, Texas (Jan. 12, 2017)
Fort Worth Police Chief Joel Fitzgerald, Ph.D., will speak about the importance of education to a group of Upward Bound students and parents during the annual TRiO Upward Bound Spring Orientation at TCC South Campus. Fitzgerald is expected to share his own experiences as an Upward Bound participant. The theme for the event is, “An Upward Bound Community: Giving Back and Moving Forward.”
The purpose of UB is to generate in program participants the skills and motivation necessary to complete a program of secondary education and to enter and succeed in college. Upward Bound helps high school students to bridge the gap between secondary school and college and provides them with academic resources to prepare for postsecondary education. TCC provides high school students in Tarrant County with services year-round through its academic and summer bridge components.
