SRA truly is a life changing non profit for those students who are in need and looking to overcome adversity. The support, guidance and love that they provide their students is incomparable and truly admirable. Without SRA and te support of the entire SRA staff, I wouldn't have been as successful as I was in college and as successful as I am today. I look up to my advisor and the entire staff as role models for they are examples of what makes a nonprofit organization so great and impactful in the greater community. I absolutely love SRA!!!

Students Rising Above is GREAT! My sister is currently in College because this program has helped her to follow her dreams and get the best education possible. There are thousands of students that get an opportunity to shine because of this program. Not only does this help the student but also helps their family in seeing their children progress and continue to a brighter future. Student Rising Above to me is part of our family we have been very blessed to have them help my sister get one of the best things in life EDUCATION. Thank you so much! From: The Razo Family :)
