It has been an honor to connect with Michelle Obama's Reach Higher initiative, the former First Lady's effort to inspire every student in America to take charge of their future by completing their education past high school, whether at a professional training program, a community college, or a four-year college or university. Eric Waldo and Don Yu are Reach Higher "rock stars" who have assembled an incredible team dedicated to the mission.
Reach Higher has provided a platform for the Riverside County Education Collaborative (RCEC) to boost their story nationwide. We are so grateful that the Reach Higher team has amplified our voice.
Mark LeNoir and Catalina Cifuentes have really been the driving force behind RCEC and the #RaceToSubmit FAFSA completion competition. I am grateful to have been a part of this initiative from the inception. It's been a ton of fun and we are continuously learning and trying to spread the word.
