The Director says...



After 22 years of dedicated service, Carol Jensen has retired as Director of SOU Pre- College Youth Programs and I am honored to pick up where she left off. I look forward to working with the superb Pre-College Youth Programs staff and Advisory Board, program supporters, and community members throughout the region to continue the thirty- four year legacy of robust, diverse, and rigorous learning opportunities provided for pre-college students. Please stop by our offices, drop me an email, or give me a call. I look forward to getting to know you!
