Arkansas State University - Beebe TRiO staff, along with other TRiO representatives from around the state, are pictured above with U.S. Senator Mark Pryor (standing, second from right). The group traveled to Washington, D.C. and met with members of the U.S. Congress to bring awareness of the TRiO program’s benefits and needs for additional funding. TRiO programs are federally funded and assist students in developing skills necessary to succeed in college. Data provided by these grant programs show participating students do well in college achievement, as opposed to those students who have not participated in TRiO programs.
