LRSC through the Years Post

TRiO is also celebrating a milestone

Not only is LRSC celebrating its 75th anniversary, but TRiO Student Support Services (SSS) Program is celebrating its golden anniversary!

TRiO is just one federal program that is focused on helping students achieve academic success, and was originally conceived by Lyndon B. Johnson’s administration as part of the “War on Poverty” to help American students from all populations reach academic success. Other programs include Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement, Talent Search, Training Program for Federal TRIO Programs Staff, Upward Bound, Upward Bound Math-Science, and Veterans Upward Bound.

TRiO Student Support Services program at Lake Region State College started in 2001 and serves students that meet its criteria. National statistics show that students involved with TRIO are twice as likely to complete their degrees as students not involved in the program.  The TRiO SSS program at LRSC serves around 160 students a year.  Lake Region State College also has a similar program called PowerSkills for students not eligible for TRiO but in need of similar assistance.
