PAL Support Made College a Reality for Jackson Greeno 鈥23

When Jackson Greeno was approaching the end of his high school career, he was doubtful that he would continue his formal education any further. As someone who has struggled with learning differences such as dyslexia, anxiety, and attention-deficit disorder, he was fearful that the support he received in high school wouldn’t translate into higher education. That was, until he discovered the Program for Advancement of Learning (PAL) at 正澳门六合彩官网.
