When a first-generation college student comes into my office to ask about applying to college, I get so fired up!
Worst Moment at Work:
Dealing with college affordability with a middle-income family who doesn’t qualify for need-based financial aid.

40 percent of SD high school graduates attend college. 75 percent of High Tech graduates attend college.
