Augustin Caraza, Spanish,

TRIO thanks the following businesses and individuals for contributing goods and services to the annual TRIO Day fundraiser; we raised over $1700 to hold celebratory events in honor of FLC’s TRIO graduates : College Drive Café, CJ’s Diner, Conundrum Escape Rooms, Maria’s Bookshop, Ska Brewing, Durango Joe’s, Durango and Silverton Railroad, FLC Bee Club, Durango Doughworks, Animas Trading Company, and more than 20 FLC staff and students. The National TRIO programs have been around since the 1960’s providing academic services, financial guidance and personal support to low-income students, students with disabilities and students whose parents don’t have college degrees. Thank you, Everyone, for supporting this worthy cause.

2018 TRIO students thank LPEA Round Up Foundation!

TRIO SSC thanks La Plata County Electric Association, Inc. Round Up Foundation for funding the purchase of flash drives and academic planners for TRIO's students this year!

MICHAEL HATLEYI knew when I stepped into TRIO that a long struggle was coming to an end. It was the beginning of a new journey, for the first time in my life I felt I could start to  explore my dreams. I have hope for a better future now because I can put all my energy into my studies and focus on learning. My TRIO advisor is awesome, she looks out for opportunities and scholarships that benefit my student career. When I feel lost or confused I know I always have somewhere to go and someone to talk to.
