Troy Johnson and Michele Bobadilla recently talked about the benefits of a college education with fifth graders at Mill Street Elementary School in Lewisville.
The College Bound program aims to demystify college, plant the "opportunity seed" in grade school students, and promote the University in the region. The hands-on activities it provides support college awareness and include personnel from UTA's Recruitment, Outreach Services, and GO Centers.
Johnson is UTA vice president of enrollment management. Bobadilla is UTA senior associate vice president for outreach and community engagement and assistant provost for Hispanic student success.
