Staff & Board

Elizabeth Paulus, M.Ed., CAP

“I know that education is transformative, and our program serves as a bridge to a better future through higher education. I feel a deep connection with every student I come in contact with because each represents our past, present and future. Every generation seeks the same thing – opportunity. I have seen what the lack of college guidance has done to the most well-intentioned student. Opportunity is lost. First Generation students and all those underrepresented in college require our utmost support for equal access to opportunity and success.”
