Marvin Thompson,, (909) 374-6032 While growing up in the City of Pomona I undermined my ability to succeed academically. College did not seem as a realistic option for myself. Due to mistakes and challenges, I could not graduate from a traditional high school therefore I recieved my GED at Pomona Adult & Career Education in 2008. Although to me college didn't seem like an option my mother and sister though differently. My sister held my hand and walked me through each step of the Mt. SAC admissions process. Once I became acclimated to the campus my self doubt was broken. I became involved with Phi Theta Kappa, Alpha Gamma Sigma, and the Honors Program. The hardships I encountered throughout my educational journey have shaped my into the persistent individual I am today. I now devote myself to empowering the lives of our youth by providing resources and opporunities leading them to a successful transition to college and adult lives. Educational History: Pomona Adult & Career Education, Mt. SAC, and University of La Verne.
