In the News: Alumna credits TRiO programs and former director Rengiil for guiding her to college, graduation
"As UOG kicks off its 70th anniversary celebration this week, I’m reminded that if it weren’t for Mr. Yoichi K. Rengiil or TRiO programs, there would be thousands who couldn’t boast of being a Triton alum, myself included. [...]
It’s the magic of TRiO to successfully run a program that’s put dozens of Micronesian kids like me through college, all without aging.
Without Upward Bound, one of the three programs under the TRiO umbrella, I wouldn’t have known what to do to apply to a college, let alone graduate."
