AT&T was proud to sponsor the inaugural Young Achievers Forum held in mid-February at New Mexico State University. The forum brought together 500 sixth graders from Dona Aña, Otero and Luna counties to experience the college life for a day.
The students got a chance to meet with NMSU students, professors and professionals in science, technology, engineering, math, health and medical sciences and business.
Many had parents and family members attend the forum with them. Parents learned more about the benefits of a college education for their children and options on how to seek assistance in paying for college. Many of these parents and students had never even been on a college campus, and the forum was a great way to demystify the college experience.
We also want to thank CommUNITY EN Acción for also sponsoring the event and Gov. Susana Martinez for delivering the keynote address.
