College Track’s Eddie Koen Speaks Before Denver City Council
Last month, College Track Regional Executive Director, Eddie Koen spoke at the Denver City Council Legislative Meeting about the obstacles facing low-income students. Today, fifty percent of adults in Denver have an associate’s degree or higher, yet the city has one of the highest equity gaps between whites and non-whites in the nation. These incredible young people are not given the opportunity to succeed.
College Track is committed to empowering students from underserved communities to graduate from college. In 2016, we plan to open a second Colorado site at Abraham Lincoln High School in partnership with Denver Public Schools.
