Texas April AmeriCorps coaches of the month

Check out College Forward’s (now college Possible) April coaches of the month:

Elizabeth Petrie

College Completion Coach – Austin 
Hometown: St. Louis, MO

“I joined College Forward because I’ve always been very passionate about education and college access. My favorite thing about College Forward is the relationships I’m building with my students. Working with the University of Texas at Austin, and St. Edward’s University, I’m fortunate to be able to go on monthly campus visits. I love interacting with my students on these campus visits; I definitely think they’ve attributed to some of the close relationships I’ve built.”



Callie Thomas

College Access Coach – Houston 
Hometown: Versailles, KY

“I understand the importance and power of education, and I wanted to help students realize the positive impact that education can have on them. My favorite moments are when my students accomplish something that they were not expecting, such as an improved ACT score, a scholarship award or acceptance to a college. It is great to see how these accomplishments illustrate their abilities and motivate these students to continue working hard toward their goals.”
