Project Success students celebrate graduation

College is a challenge for all students, but especially for those who are the first in their family to pursue higher education. Project Success at MCC-Penn Valley is a Student Support Services TRIO program whose services include: tutoring, counseling, transfer assistance and cultural assistance. The program recently hosted a celebration for graduating students.

Project Success, run by Toni Alexander, is open to low-income, first-generation or disabled college students, and is designed to increase retention and graduation rates as well as assist with transferring to four year colleges.
