STUDENT SUCCESS STORIES
Danny Soto transferred from RCC as a non-graduate in the spring of 2005. He was
accepted at UMass Amherst and graduated with a BA in Sociology with a concentration in
Criminal Justice. He is now a second year law student at Suffolk Law. Danny has
represented UMass Amherst for the last two years at the RCC transfer fair. His presence is
instrumental in that he serves in a dual capacity at the fair. He can certainly relate to the
RCC students because he is similar to them in so many ways, but also he provides insight
into the transfer experience as well as the merits of attending a large university.
Gaudy Corrales will be graduating from RCC in spring 2013 in Biological Science. She was one of three students at RCC
who was nominated for the Jack Kent Cooke Scholarship (JKC). Community college students across the United States
compete for this prestigious scholarship, which requires that students have at minimum a 3.5 grade point average as
well as have served in a leadership capacity outside of the classroom experience. Gaudy has been accepted into the
second year of the Doctor of Pharmacy-Boston program at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.
Lesa Antoine is a new RCC student this semester and is currently enrolled in Destination: College
(RCC's ABE Transition to Community College program funded by MA DESE). Lesa was a member of a
student panel, 'The Key to Success from the Student's Perspective" that presented at the ABE
Directors' Annual Conference— March 20-21 in Marlborough. Lesa received a standing ovation from
approximately 400 GED, ESOL and Transitions program administrators after she shared her
educational journey which took her through Project Hope and onto RCC.
