Creating opportunities. Developing leaders. Achieving excellence. That's the message the Associated Colleges of Illinois is sending and with a little, I mean a lot of help from my Taproot team, we made it happen. Donating my time working with both Taproot and ACI gave me a chance to give back to an organization that can really make a difference in the minds of low-income, minority and first generation students in Illinois. Being a McNair Scholar alumni myself, a very similar program, I understand how vital it is to have the guidance and motivation early in life to be able set your goals sky high...and achieve them. I worked closely with the content manager at ACI to develop a much cleaner, much more informative site in which to attract donors, teachers, organizations, colleges and students.
