This is the sixth in the series of interviews with the College Success Arizona team.
Continuing with this feature, and throughout the next year, we’ll be taking a closer look at the College Success Arizona team, the people that make all that we do happen. We’ll be asking the normal “tell us a little about yourself” questions, but also delving a little deeper into each team member’s personality, and what makes them who they are.
This month’s subject is Matt Sotelo, one of College Success Arizona’s great Success Advisers.
Now more than ever, increasing college attainment is a major priority for Arizona. Recently, more than 60 organizations from business, philanthropic, and education communities united to set the first ever state attainment goal—60% by 2030. This coalition, Achieve60AZ, was highlighted in Gov. Ducey’s State of the State address as an initiative he plans to support in 2017.
The Arizona College Access Network (AzCAN), a program of College Success Arizona, is proud to announce that 25 education leaders from across the state have completed the College Access Professional (CAP) certificate program, designed to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to help Arizona students succeed beyond high school.
