for me to give back to those that were like me.

If you cut Upward Bound-type programs, then those

students that were like me who were a part of this

public school system that really was not helping a

lot of people--if you cut programs like that,

students like me would not be standing here today

as teachers right now. Right now, I teach at City

Colleges of Chicago.

So I just want to say that Upward Bound

has done so much for so many and I am an advocate

of it. I advocate all of the TRIO programs to my

students. The TRIO programs actually are Upward

Bound, Educational Talent Search, Educational

Opportunity Centers, Upward Bound Math and

Science, Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate

Program Student Support Services, and they also

have professional training grants that are also

under the TRIO umbrella.

The last thing that I really want to say

about Upward Bound is that it was started to

help--the purpose of the program was to help

students matriculate into college and become

successful and contributing people to our nation

and society. I have a lot of friends who have

graduated from Upward Bound and they are doing

just that. So I want you to consider keeping the

TRIO programs when you go back to the Beltway.

DAN MADZELAN: Thank you.
