SOUTH SIOUX CITY – Preparing for college can be an overwhelming task for anyone. That task can be even greater for a family that has never had a single member attend college. Northeast Community College and South Sioux City Public Schools have created a partnership to make the job of college preparation less daunting, especially for Latino families. “We have a lot of first generation students with parents who are really uncertain how this college process works. They’re not sure how to help their children with college. So we came together to look at ways to provide them information so they can see that it may not be as intimidating as they think,” said Maria Gonzalez, advisor/recruiter for Northeast Community College in South Sioux City.
