As part of UTA's Upward Bound Math & Science program, Maverick student-athletes participated in college planning break-out sessions, visiting with future collegiate students on Wednesday. 

UTA track & field/cross country student-athletes Chloe Lewis, Tobi Fawehinmi and Tori Shelton were among the UTA athletic standouts to visit with the Upward Bound program through a series of college prep sessions, joining Tim Kennedy, a former track standout who serves as one of UTA's dynamic student development specialists.

In the last session of the morning, Lewis and Shelton touched on the importance of building relationships with faculty and students, and stepping out of a high-school comfort zone during the transition to college. The trio of Texas natives were able to answer questions and share experiences with the future college students.

The Upward Bound program has been active at UTA since 1982 and features potential first generation college students. The program focuses on equipping students with necessary skills to succeed, both academically and personally.
