Favorite thing about Get2College

Too many to name!

What he brings to Get2College

“The Artist” (formerly known as “The Rapper”) He brings creativity (to an already creative staff). His experience teaching in JPS and working with elementary and middle schools has taught him that creating a college culture begins early. Stephen is also the resident ACT nerd and spends his free time taking practice tests… No, really… HE TAKES THE ACT FOR FUN. (Weird, right?)
