First Generation Initiative provides opportunity, names new leader

Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota is a university that prides itself on empowering individuals through education and a key to doing so is making that education accessible. Through First Generation Initiative (FGI), a Saint Mary’s education is made possible for some high school students who otherwise could not afford it. Also home to Countdown to College (C2C), Saint Mary’s brings high school students to the 400-acre Winona Campus for two weeks each year for four years to help them experience a college campus firsthand and receive college preparatory instruction. This fall, the Saint Mary’s FGI Scholars and C2C programs will be under new leadership. Alisa Macksey will serve as the director of programs for the First Generation Initiative at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota.
