Penny Vue

Penny Vue began participating in TRIO ETS in the 7th grade at Humboldt High School. She continued her involvement with TRIO ETS until she graduated from Humboldt in 2014. While in ETS, Penny participated in the St. Olaf mentoring program where she was mentored by a St. Olaf College student who provided her with advice and guidance on how to prepare for college. Penny also attended college visits with ETS, two of them being St. Olaf College and the University of Minnesota. “I love ETS. The staff is awesome and they always want the best for their students. They helped us in anyway possible and did a great job checking up on our progress in school and outside of school.”

Penny enjoyed the ETS group workshops and also getting one-on-one assistance from ETS advisors. “They taught me how to apply for college and how to create a resume. They have even stayed in contact with me after high school.”

Penny is currently a student at Metropolitan State University and is a participant in the TRIO SSS program. Penny’s goals for the future are to graduate with a master’s degree in Medical Social Work. She would like to work with middle school and high school aged youth in hospitals. Her advice to current ETS students is “to always bother the ETS staff, that is what they are there for. Also, always remember that when you feel that you are at your lowest point, you will have a shoulder to lean on at ETS.“
