Carson's #WeBelongInCollege Story

Last updated February 28, 2021

Carson was excited about college as a first-generation student, but got no help from his parents when it was time to fill out the FAFSA and other paperwork. Growing up without a lot of money, Carson had to navigate college without the materials and technology he needed. This discouraged him and he wanted to drop out.

Carson found a full time job and gave college his all, pursuing his dream. He’s now able to be an inspiration for his siblings and others in his community. He sees himself as living proof that anyone can go to college.

Carson was a recipient of a $1,000 #WeBelongInCollege Scholarship. Meet the other #WeBelongInCollege Scholarship Winners!
