Building a college-going and success culture in Florida requires integrating tools and proven practices within our K-12 and college classrooms while reaching students and families in their communities with high-quality resources and information that help prepare them academically, socially and financially for postsecondary success. The summit’s “College Access & Success Strategies” panel discussion, sponsored by New Futuro, brings together a select group of leaders representing high-quality college access and success programs from across the country to highlight successful strategies and lessons learned along the way.
Featured panelists include Bob Giannino-Racine, CEO of ACCESS, Judy Reno, Director of College Depot, Leroy Nesbitt, Program Director of College for Every Student, Thomas Albano, Executive Director of Take Stock in Children, Nadine Dalrymple, Director of POSSE Foundation, Inc. Miami, and Vivien Carter, Executive Director of College Summit Florida, Dr. Stacy Carlson, Vice President and Program Director for Helios Education Foundation will moderate the panel discussion.
“There’s great work taking place in Florida and across the country around preparing students for postsecondary success,” said Braulio Colón, Executive Director for Florida College Access Network (Florida C.A.N.!) “The goal here is to capture replicable strategies that work and to promote them to local leaders from across our state,” said Colón.
