DENTON — Local National Public Radio (NPR) radio station KERA 90.1 FM recently ran a story on how “Texas Woman's University Helps Students With No Home For The Holidays.” The story features TWU students Chasity Jones, a senior business administration major; Emily Williams, a sophomore psychology major; and Amy O’Keefe, director of TWU’s Campus Alliance for Resource Education.
This story is part of KERA’s American Graduate initiative, which charts the journey from childhood to graduation.
Both Jones and Williams are foster care alumni and part of the university’s Frontiers Program, which provides support and guidance for students who grew up in the foster care system and are attending or would like to attend TWU. The TWU Frontiers Program is unique in that currently 100 percent of our foster alumni have gone on to graduate school.
