Embracing Higher Education
Supported by Summer Search, a young man from a low-income background was also able to embrace higher education as a goal. And, as a young student, he developed a love of travel sparked by a Summer Search trip to China. After graduating, he left Napa to attend a small liberal arts college. Inspired by his summer trip experiences, he found it easy to make friends and connections. While at college, he offered personalized campus tours to any interested Summer Searchers.
Post-graduation, he returned to Napa and is now a user-centered design researcher for a medical consortium. In addition to volunteering as a mentor in many programs, he also chairs the Summer Search Alumni Board.
