Dr. Monica Powell, Associate Dean of Graduate Programs for The University of Texas Dallas School of Management and Carlos Cruz, Assistant Director for Education is Freedom, presented a great program to students and parents on Sunday, October 6. They each did an outstanding job of making the students aware of what they should be doing now as they are working on their college applications, applying for scholarships and tools to determine which school is the right fit. Their presentations made the process seem a little more manageable! Thank you Dr. Powell and Mr. Cruz!
