 I am emailing on behalf of the TRIO programs; it has came to my attention they may face budget cuts do to the sequestration cuts. Myself being a TRIO alumni of Educational Talent Search in Middle/High School where they provided me with fundamental educational services I would not have received if I were not apart of the program. They provided ACT waivers, college information and educational trips to colleges helping me to choose the best fit for me. My mother works on the opposite spectrum for the CEOC where they provide valuable help and information to people trying to return to or go to college. I fully believe in this program. I know the Student Support Services have helped one of my friends while in college by giving her free tutoring and helping her to learn good studying habits that will go with her throughout her life. This program is a great program and doesn't need any more budget cuts because as of right now they are struggling. This program helps first generation students go to college mainly then children with developmental delays, if this program becomes extinct then those individuals will not receive the help they need to get started or continue their education.
