Kilgore College Celebrates First-Generation Students

November 1, 2017

The Kilgore College SSS Program will be hosting "I'm F1RST" recognitions on November 8. Any staff or faculty who were first-generation students will receive a sign to post on their office doors recognizing them. The TRIO SSS club will sponsor a table during the day in the Student Center to provide information about first-generation students, and that evening the TRIO SSS program will host a special event for TRIO participants that will include a motivational speaker from Paradigm Shift and recognition of their fall graduates. They will also be inviting Kilgore College Upward Bound students to attend that event.
