Priscilla Flores, College of Westchester Information Technology Grad; Class of 2019.
Always involved in many activities on campus, Priscilla Flores has lived the college experience to her fullest potential at The College of Westchester (CW). From a variety of clubs, student ambassadors programs, community events, Priscilla is always willing to help. It seems that we all know her really well. However, what not too many people know is that she is a first-generation college student. Since the sky is the limit, a bachelor’s degree is not enough.

When you get a college degree, you get more choices. That’s what Janna Gullery thought when she was a college student. But she wanted even more choices so she went for her master’s degree. Now as a Dean of Student Life and Empower Program at CW, she looks back and she is proud of her accomplishments. Her efforts paid off and now she helps other students to complete their journey.
