Upward Bound Coordinator

A little about me
My name is Justin Markon, and I am the Counselor/Coordinator for Upward Bound at UW-Superior. After graduating from Northwestern High School in Maple, I attended college at St. John’s University near St. Cloud, Minnesota and graduated with a degree in political science. At SJU, I worked for two years as a Tutor/Mentor with their Upward Bound program. I also had the amazing opportunity to study abroad in Kolkata, India.
Outside of work, I enjoy being outside hiking the Superior Hiking Trail, canoeing the Brule River, or camping in any good place I can find. Now that I am “home” in Superior, I am excited to serve the students in the UB program. Whether they need help with homework or want to know more about a college or just need someone to talk to, I hope to be a resource for all students.
