We are so excited for Rocio, who came into the EOC Johnson County office for help enrolling at Tarrant County College this summer! We first met Rocio when she was a senior at Crossroads Christian School in 2019. She is now ready to start the diagnostic medical sonography program at TCC and is on her way! Rocio will not have to worry about paying out of pocket for her education because she qualified for the Pell grant!

On behalf of the ORS staff, students, clients, and community, ORS would like to thank Terry Connor and Greg Swalwell for their generous donation of $12,000 to help cover the costs of renewing our existing Upward Bound programs and applying for new Upward Bound programs. Your continued support will help us expand our programs so that hundreds more low-income youth in underserved communities receive the intensive, year-round college preparation and mentoring that will help each of them become the first in their families to graduate college.
