With the theme “Better Together”, the 2016 Florida College Access Network Summit was held at Lake Buenavista. Its goal: to keep empowering communities to work constructively together with our schools and build partnerships with universities, colleges, schools, community organizations, businesses, parents, and students.
Pumariega gave the closing remarks at the summit emphasizing that colleges, business, community leaders and community-based organizations need to work together so that college attainment and college graduation is a reality for all.
UnidosNow Executive Director, Luz Corcuera, participated in the Summit to learn about best practices to bring back to our community. Corcuera was touched by the stories she heard from first generation college students, reminding her to UnidosNow’s scholars.
