My name is Myra Gilreath, and I’m the Assistant Director of the Regional Center for Math & Science (an Upward Bound Math Science program) at UW-Green Bay. I’ll be serving as your president this year, and would like to introduce you to my theme for the year: “Upgrading, Updating, and Downloading a Passion for Educational Opportunity.”
WAEOPP has a long history. We are the home state of COE founder Arnold Mitchem, COE President Maureen Hoyler, and TRIO Champion Congresswoman Gwen Moore. We have a lot of pride in our state for many things: cheese, beer, the Packers, great communities and natural beauty. We’re home to UW-Madison, Marquette University, and many other nationally recognized institutions of higher learning. It’s time we were also known for our amazing educational opportunity programs and our excellent network of college access professionals. Being a part of MAEOPP will help us achieve this goal, but we must also do some leg work ourselves.
I hope that many of you are able to attend Policy Seminar and learn how to advocate for TRIO at the national level. We can’t forget our state
