Sowing success

Thursday, April 13, 2023

The sacrifices involved in migrant work are immense. From their homes in Texas, California, Florida, and other states, migrant students and their families may drive to Michigan, the Dakotas, Arkansas, and Washington to sow and harvest America's produce. The work is grueling. And while the children of these families take pride in their parents' work ethic, they struggle to continue their schooling. The 50-year-old College Assistance Migrant program strives to break this cycle, helping migrant and seasonal farm worker students go to college and earn a degree.
