Dr. Lerodrick Terry, with the non-profit College Bound Arizona, was the spotlighted guest at December’s “Mesa Morning Live.” He introduced the audience to the college access program that has been in existence since 2010.

“We serve under represented students born in poverty,” Terry explained, adding that Arizona rates 50th for K-12 education. “These students represent our past, present and future. We help strengthen our community and that’s a goal for all of us.”

Since 2010, College Bound Arizona has served more than 300 students (80 in college, 10 percent graduated with a 90 percent placement rate). The group empowers low income youth through academic and personal development to achieve educational success.

“We spend time as mentors because everyone needs a mentor and we volunteer to teach workshops,” Terry said. “Our future leaders need to spend time with you so please consider volunteering.”
