Miles Appeals to Dept of Ed For Renewal of Five-Year Upward Bound Grant

When Reginald Reese describes his first year at Alabama A&M University, he can’t help but smile.

“It went well. It went well. I’ve got a really great professor. I’ve got great friends. All my friend’s got 3.8, 4.0s,” he said.

And as for his GPA, it’s a 3.5.

“I actually got a 3.8 this semester,” he said, after a little prodding.

His modesty is just part of who he is.

But his success during his freshman year in college is due in big part to attending Upward Bound at Miles College for all four of his high school years.
