"Upward Bound was a program that complemented my personal academic aggressiveness. Most of all Upward bound was an extended family composed of teachers, staff and the lifelong friendship that I've developed with my peers and because of this influence I credit Upward bound for taking part in molding me into the adult that I am continuously growing into today."

"Upward Bound is a great program that meant hope for me, and I thank God for being apart of this program/family. I love the program so much that after my first year in college I went back and became a mentor/tutor. That summer was one of the best; there is no better feeling than giving back to those who have helped you along the way."
