Kolondra Harvey, Director
My name is Kolondra Harvey and I have been the Director of Pre-College TRIO Programs since May 2012. I have spent over 19 years with the UC Berkeley Pre- College TRIO Programs. I started as Residential Counselor with the Upward Bound Program in 1994 and since then I have worked with all three components of the Pre- College TRIO Programs in many capacities. As coming from a low-income, first-generation background, I truly believe in the cores values of what our Pre- College TRIO provides our students and families. It is very gratifying to see students achieve their goals of entering into higher education. When I am not working with our students and families, I am busy being a mother of many. I also enjoy watching my children play their individual sports, reading and cooking.
I was raised in Richmond and attended De Anza High School where I became a student in the UC Berkeley, Pre-College TRIO Talent Search Program. With support from my parents and guidance from the Talent Search Program, I attended UC Santa Barbara where I majored in Black Studies and minored in Global Peace and Security. I moved back to the Bay Area after graduating and decided to continue my education at Sacramento State University where I attained my Masters in Bilingual and Multicultural Education. I worked as a Talent Search college advisor for six years before becoming the Associate Director of Counseling for the Pre-College TRIO Programs at UC Berkeley. As a proud TRIO alumna, I am committed to the success of low-income, first generation, and underrepresented students. TRIO Works!
Sumi Godfrey, Associate Director, Counseling
Abigail García, Associate Director, Academics
I was born and raised in East Los Angeles and left home for the first time to attend UC Berkeley. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a minor in Spanish; however, of most value were the lessons I learned about the need for equity in our school systems. I was driven to the field of education due to my strong belief that every student deserves a quality education. I continued my education at Loyola Marymount University, and received my BCLAD credential and Masters in Secondary Education. I had the great fortune to teach at the high school level for eight years. Now, as the Associate Director of Academics for the Pre-College TRIO programs at UC Berkeley, I fight to make higher learning a viable option for low-income, first generation-to-college students.
