Greetings and a warm welcome to our very first issue of our newly revised SAEOPP Sentinel!

We couldn’t be more excited to have made it to this point. Please take some time to get to know the layout of the newsletter. You will notice the 3 categories of articles: College, Pre College and Professionals. Within each category, there are brief stories of what is happening in our region.

You can look at one category at a time, or just peruse the articles on the home page to choose which to read first. Just as with a paper magazine, you may want to sit and read the whole thing at once, or come back to this issue several times to digest the articles more slowly.

When we set out to create an on-line newsletter that would provide up to date information and program highlights of happenings regionally and nationally. What you will find in the pages of Sentinel Newsletter is a collection of inspired students and informative articles written by real, honest, down-to-earth TRiO professionals.

We are honored to share the work of so many committed and thoughtful people. Please visit the SAEOPP.ORG webpage to see the other wonderful things happening among SAEOPPians. Also, feel free to leave comments on the articles to share your thoughts or ask the author a question.

We appreciate your support and are so happy to have you as a reader of SAEOPP Sentinel!
