"I honestly don't know where I'd be college wise if it wasn't for Upward Bound. Everything I know about the college process I learned from the program. I truly value my time in the program and believe that more people should do it." - Gaddo Mantey, Fairmont Height HS Class of 2013, University of Maryland undergraduate student.
"Without Upward Bound there is a strong possibility that I would have never completed high school. Upward Bound helped me get my life on the right track and headed to college." - Lennox DaSilva, Bladensburg HS Class of 2012, Towson University undergraduate student.
