As we enter 2022, I am excited to start the year serving as the new executive director for College Possible Washington. As a multiracial first-generation college graduate from Central Washington, I am personally connected to the vision and mission of this spectacular organization. My journey to College Possible started with my love of learning and the experience I had in public school that education resources were rarely allocated equitably. I had the privilege to have phenomenal educators in my corner and with their support was able to excel in school.
After college I served as an AmeriCorps member and experienced the immense talents and innate abilities of students coupled with the institutional barriers to their success. This pivotal experience pushed me to explore the ways we can break down those barriers, to enable students to feel seen, supported and able to thrive. My journey led me to work in school counseling and eventually to the nonprofit City Year Seattle/King County. I have spent the last six years in the Seattle community advocating for student voices, collaborative partnerships and innovation in the schoolhouse.
I am proud to become an integral part of the College Possible Washington team as we focus on student success in getting to and through college. Navigating a continuous pandemic has been challenging for all of us, especially our young people. The resilience of our AmeriCorps members, the human-centered approach of our staff and the steadfast support of our school partners have all ensured high levels of student support. I look forward to building off a legacy of positive student impact and connecting with the many champions who support our work. I am hopeful for the new year and motivated by the opportunities ahead. As a community-centered leader I welcome the ability to connect and can be reached at LTreacy@CollegePossible.org.
I wish you all a healthy and happy start to your 2022!
