 Jean Carlo PalaciosWhen he started at Valley College, Jean Carlo Palacios placed into below college level math on the placement test.  Yet his EOPS counselor …”believed in my ability to succeed in the sciences, a belief that I didn’t even have for myself.”  This fall, he is transferring to UCLA as a mathematics major.
