Aaron Garcia, Learning Specialist
As a Evergreen High School class of 2005 TRiO Upward Bound alumni I feel a strong connect with TRiO programs. In the spring of 2010 I graduated from Western Washington University with a Political Science/Social Studies degree. As a Talent Search Student Service Specialist I can now give back to my community by assisting future Evergreen wolverines achieve their goals of making it to college.
