The UNLV Upward Bound Math & Science Center (UBMSC) provides eligible first generation and low-income high school students with college preparatory support and services. Preparing students to graduate high school and enroll in a postsecondary institution is a task that UBMSC director, Jennie Johnson, takes seriously. She works hard to enrich UBMSC participants both academically and socially by collaborating with UNLV colleges and departments to further the academic success of the program participants. With several UBMSC participants graduating in the top percentile of their class, the UNLV Honors College was on the top of the list of colleges to collaborate with. Mrs. Johnson invited David Sinclair, assistant director of recruitment and admissions, to present to the Upward Bound participants and parents about the benefits of the Honors College.

David Sinclair stated, “Each year, the Honors College welcomes a small, diverse class of students from around the world.” Like Upward Bound, the Honors College is built for students who want more challenging opportunities in college. The UBMSC students and parents were extremely interested in the presentation and stayed for over an hour asking questions. UBMSC is pleased to announce that there are numerous high school freshmen participants who are eager to graduate and apply for admission to UNLV and the Honors College.
