Yesterday GO students and staff welcomed Dr. Simone Rodriguez-Doresta, Dean of Academic Success Programs at Bronx Community College to speak with our community about working hard to get to college.
Dr. Rodriguez-Doresta is newly appointed at BCC and she will be overseeing the engagement that the University has with Community-Based organizations like Grace Outreach. She shared the story of her own academic journey and discussed how her path was different than the one she initially planned for herself. She emphasized working hard and remaining open to new challenges. Students learned about academic degree options and the vocational programs that BCC offers.
Dr. Rodriguez-Doresta invited all students to join her at Bronx Community College once they receive their High School Equivalency degrees and complete the College Program at Grace Outreach.
