Ninety students from three Buffalo high schools just completed the academically focused Upward Bound residential program at Buffalo State. They will be recognized during the Upward Bound awards banquet on August 11 at 7:00 p.m. in the Campbell Student Union Social Hall.
Maureen Hoyler, president of the Council for Opportunity in Education (COE), will give the keynote address during the banquet. COE is a nonprofit organization that provides professional development, program improvement, and advocacy for nearly 2,800 federally funded college opportunity programs at almost 1,000 colleges and universities nationwide.
For years Hoyler has been a voice for low-income, first-generation students, and individuals with disabilities. As president, she oversees management of the Washington office and the fiscal affairs of the association while serving as the primary liaison between the association and Congress.
