    SPC to participate in National TRIO Day celebration at Texas Tech April 25

    LEVELLAND – South Plains College will participate in National TRIO Day festivities with a luncheon from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday (April 25) in the Merket Alumni Center on the Texas Tech University campus in Lubbock.

    Recipients of the TRIO Achiever Awards will be honored. Upward Bound at SPC will recognize Armando E. Portillo and the Star Center will honor Yolanda Salgado.

    Portillo, a graduate of Littlefield High School and the University of North Texas, works as a qualified mental health professional at Child and Family Guidance Center in Dalla


    s. He entered UNT first as a


    “Bridge” student in UNT Upward Bound Math and Science. He worked for the McNair Scholars Program as a student assistant, the Student Support Services Program as a tutor and the UB and UBMS as a workshop teacher, resident advisor and dorm supervisor. He graduated in May 2011 with an Undergraduate Academic Certificate in Substance Abuse Treatment and a Bachelor of Science degree in Rehabilitation Studies.

    Salgado, a graduate of Wellman Union, South Plains College and Texas Tech University, works as the Student Records Coordinator and Supervisor in the Admission Office at SPC. She became active

    yolanda salgado

    in the STAR Center after her first semester at SPC because she felt lost as a student. With assistance from the staff at the STAR Center, Salgado found the resources and other information to help her fulfill her academic goals. She graduated with Sigma Delta Pi honors and she was involved as an Ambassador for the College of Human Sciences and the Catholic Student Organization.

    In 1965, Title IV of the Higher Education Act established the TRIO programs to help low-income Americans enter college, graduate and move on to participate more fully in America's economic and social life. TRIO began with three programs and now represents seven programs including Upward Bound, Upward Bound Math Science, Veterans Upward Bo


    und, Talent Search, Educational Opportunity Centers, Student Support Services and the Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program.

    South Plains College offers two TRIO programs – Upward Bound Program and the STAR Center


    . Upward Bound gives young students academic, personal and cultural enrichment to prepare them for higher education. Students enrolled in the ninth through eleventh grades are eligible for the program. The SPC Upward Bound Program serves students from Brownfield, Levelland, Littlefield, Morton, Whiteface and Whitharral.

    The STAR Center (Student Support Services) provides its participants with educational tools necessary to be successful in college. The program is designed to increase the rates of retention, graduation and/or transfer to a four-year institution of the students enrolled in the program. 

    For information about Upward Bound, contact Chris Riley, director, at (806) 716-2651. For the STAR Center, contact Rita Quinonez-Prieto, director, at (806) 716-2751.
