Angie Hugdahl, director of the Upward Bound program at the University of Wisconsin-Superior, has been named the 2017 EOA TRIO Achiever – current TRIO Professional. She was honored at the Educational Opportunity Association (EOA) Presidential Banquet Schaumburg, Illinois.

Upward Bound is a federally funded program created in 1964 to identify and assist promising high school students who face barriers to completing high school and enrolling in a post-secondary institution. Since then, more than 800 Upward Bound programs across the nation have helped hundreds of thousands of young people.

In June the Upward Bound program at UW-Superior was refunded with a $1.28 million grant for the next five years. This program serves 56 high school students from the Superior School District who are low-income and/or first-generation college students who have a desire to attend postsecondary education. UW-Superior is one of 14 Upward Bound programs in Wisconsin providing support services to high potential students who would be unlikely to pursue higher education without extra support. Upward Bound provides that support at no cost to the families or the school district.

The TRIO programs include eight outreach and support programs targeted to help disadvantaged students progress from middle school to post-baccalaureate programs. These include Student Support Services, Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement, Upward Bound, Upward Bound Math/Science, Veterans Upward Bound, Talent Search, Education Opportunity Centers, and Training Program for Federal TRIO Program Staff.

More than 400 TRIO and College Access and Success professionals from the EOA 10-state region attended the banquet.
