School: University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Class of 2020
College Possible supported Jayson, helping him get to college and set an example for his younger siblings. Now, with the support of his college coach, Joe, he’s committed to staying in college through graduation and earning a four-year degree.
“I made a promise to my college coaches and College Possible that I’m not going to give up on this. I’ve worked this hard to get here. I’m not going to quit, no matter what.”
Update as of May 2017: After several semesters at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM), Jayson is now taking classes part-time at MATC and working a full-time job. He plans to get his associate’s degree at MATC and transfer back to UWM.
