Congratulations to Joyce Nguyen-Hernandez, Manager of College Access and Success, for her selection as a National College Access Network College and Career Readiness Fellow! The fellowship will focus on professional development in order to grow the fellows into more effective college and career readiness leaders in their schools, communities, and states. Ms. Nguyen-Hernandez was one of just 15 fellows selected nationally.

NCAN established the fellowship program with support from the recently-awarded Postsecondary Pathways Project. Fellows are an on-the-ground resource for NCAN to receive feedback on various K-12-focused resources. Through communication with the fellows, NCAN will be able to produce materials that are responsive to specific needs identified by practitioners themselves.

Ms. Nguyen-Hernandez’s selection reflects her dedication to helping remove barriers for KCPS students to attend college. This year, KCPS expanded the college access team to help more students navigate the admission process.
