Alyssa has worked with TRIO Upward Bound at USM in several capacities since 1999. She has filled many roles for USM’s program, including Graduate Assistant, Guide and Lead Guide during the summer program, and now Coordinator of the Sanford-Biddeford grant, working primarily with students from Sanford High School. An alum of the UB program at UMF, Alyssa went on to complete her undergraduate degree in Communication from USM and recently finished her Master’s degree, during which she focused much of her studies on her work with TRIO students. She has been a long-time member of the USM community as both a student and a staff member and really enjoys the unique role she has working with TRIO Upward Bound students.
