Hugo in 8GAHugo accepted to Hamilton

In 2006, Hugo went on a Citizen Schools 8th Grade Academy field trip to Hamilton College where he toured the campus wearing a Hamilton hooded sweatshirt, little did he know that would seal his fate.  Four years later today, we are proud to announce that he has been accepted as an undergraduate at Hamilton College!  Congratulations to Hugo and his family for such a tremendous accomplishment! 

Hugo’s story is not only inspiring, but it’s a great example of how early exposure and access to college and career pathways can lead to a successful future.
