Upward Bound participants fill up one of three large auditoriums on the UNLV campus during the fall 2017 orientation


The Upward Bound Math and Science Center’s (UBMSC) fall 2017 orientation started off with new grants and new students as they filled up three auditoriums in the UNLV Carol C. Harter Classroom Building Complex. Parents and participants were eager to get the new school year started. Adding to the excitement was a college admissions workshop offered by both UNLV and the College of Southern Nevada (CSN). Sarah Dailey, UNLV admissions counselor and Anthony Herrera, CSN admissions counselor, captivated the seniors. Both were very thorough in going over every step a high school senior needs to complete to ensure acceptance into a college or university.

In addition to a packed house, the UBMSC staff had another reason to be excited, the program was honored by the AT&T corporation with a check for $10,000. It was a great privilege for the students to be acknowledged for their hard work and commitment to their education by an organization such as AT&T. This award will help the staff provide over 500 participants with remedial college courses, tutoring, credit recovery, as well as exam preparation and fees.
