National TRIO DAY 2024
On February 24, 1986, a congressional resolution (H. Con. Res. 278) declared that Saturday, February 28, 1986, should be designated as "National TRIO Day" to commemorate the annual achievements of the Federal TRIO programs in communities across the country.
Every year since then, our community has reserved the fourth Saturday in February as National TRIO Day — an opportunity to focus the nation's "attention on the needs of disadvantaged young people and adults aspiring to improve their lives if they are to become contributing citizens of the country, and to the talent which will be wasted if that investment is not made."
This years TRIO Day Celebration will be February 24th, hosted by the TRIO Student Support Services Program at Eastern Illinois University in beautiful Charleston, IL. The cost to attend is $50.00 per participant plus a small fee for Ticket Spice.
