A Story of Success

Hi, my name is Hugo Salazar – I work for inspirED as a GO Center Mentor and currently attend Tarrant County College (TCC). I graduated in 2013 from Sam Houston High School in Arlington, Texas, where I’ve lived most of my life. My younger sister, Nora, is currently a junior at Sam Houston High School. My parents, Eleuterio and Nora, have always made education a high priority for my sister and me because they understand how important education is in today’s world and the doors that it can open for us both. My parents’ encouragement helped me decide to go to college, but there were many others that helped guide me through the actual steps to get to college, which is how I first became involved with the GO Center. Two advocates that stand out the most for me include Cynthia Carter, Sam Houston Counselor extraordinaire, and Margaret Oaikena, former TCU Advise TX Adviser and current inspirED Outreach Coordinator.
