Ralph Boots, EDFP, Community Developer for the City of Trenton, recently visited the Upward Bound program at North Central Missouri College and presented information about leadership, goal setting and motivation. U.B. students participated in various activities including group discussions and interactive presentations; pictured are the students in an exercise requiring them to raise and lower a stick at the same time.
The Upward Bound program at NCMC helps prepare high school students from the Trenton, Chillicothe, Gallatin, Hamilton, Jamesport and Galt school districts for postsecondary education. It also helps those students enroll in their chosen college. Upward Bound is 100% federally funded through the Department of Education at $236,925.
