Feeling supported, Topete finds opportunity at Hastings College (video)

There are some students who get told they won’t succeed in college. There are some students whose home life makes the idea of college seem far out of reach.

Thinking she wouldn’t be able to attend college, one call from an admissions counselor changed everything for Socorro Topete of South Sioux City, Nebraska.

Despite the challenges, Topete was able to attend her first choice, Hastings College, and she is grateful the school took a chance on her.
