Sometimes You’re a Counselor. Sometimes You’re a Friend

Betty comes from a large family. Her parents immigrated to the U.S. from Africa. Her father, who struggled to find adequate paying jobs, worked long hours, leaving Betty to care for her younger siblings. She longed for a better life. Candace, a College Advising Corps adviser at Texas Christian University, worked with Betty one-on-one to help her apply to multiple schools and to her delight was accepted to all but one. Today, Betty is enrolled in college and majoring in business. “She’s achieving her dream at her dream school,” shares Candace. The TCU program place highly trained advisers in Tarrant County high schools, ensuring the county’s low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented students are empowered to identify and pursue their best postsecondary opportunities.

The reason I continue to believe in the type of work we do as advisers, are the students. There is no greater feeling than encouraging and motivating students to pursue their dreams and goals. Salma Juarez, Adviser, Paschal High School
