Yvaunna Brown just graduated from Hazelwood West High School and feels like the future is wide open.
She’s thinking about community college, or maybe the University of Missouri-St. Louis is a better fit. Brown is dead set on one thing, though: becoming the first person in her family to go to college.
“And that’s pretty exciting,” Brown said. “That’s a big deal for me.”
It’s also daunting. Loads of paper work must be completed and the deadlines will start coming fast.
