Pueblo districts are teaming up with CSU Pueblo to get students on track for college!

The space and tools they’ve designated is changing lives and today they’re opening two brand new centers.

Staff at the Track Centers will help students by navigating them through the college application process. We caught up with one student who is well on her way to achieving her goals thanks to the Tracks Center!

Morgan Patton is a senior at East High School with dreams of becoming a nurse. Morgan submitted her most recent college application just yesterday and tells News 5 its all thanks to the Tracks Center staff.

They showed her scholarships options and financial aid resources. She tells News 5 having that guidance was a game changer!

“College is that next step that you can get to further your education to do something you love, like in my case nursing,” said Morgan. “College is going to help me get to a step where when I go to work it’s not like I’m working it’s something I love to do everyday.”

The Tracks Center is free and available to all students in District 60 and 70. There will be a staff member on hand at both locations to assist students as needed. The two new centers are located and Pueblo East and Pueblo West High Schools.
