James E. Cooper Jr. | St. Philip's College
As San Antonio works to increase its college attainment to 50% to achieve its 2020 goal, we know that our college enrollment numbers continue to decline. The average associate degree graduate from the Alamo Colleges will see an increase in earnings of $9,400 each year compared to someone with a high school diploma working in Texas. James E. Cooper Jr. talks about a new grant at St. Philip's College that connects students experiencing violent acts to resources, ultimately reducing barriers and providing support so students can reach their full potential.
