I just love seeing their eyes light up when they know they can do it. That’s my warm and fuzzy.”
— NCRF Founder and Executive Director, Dr. Theresa Price
UNITED STATES, March 17, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- On February 25th, NCRF Founder Dr. Theresa Price was featured on “CBS This Morning” with Gayle King. The feature story highlights the work that the National College Resources Foundation has been doing for over 22 years and features the student success stories of NCRF's alums Lorin Crawford and Devin Williams.

Interviewed by CBS Reporter Jamie Yuccas, Dr. Price discusses her passion for helping over 500,000 students get to college. A large percentage of these students come from single parent or foster homes. Some are even homeless. In his interview, Devin Williams, a 20-
year-old student who has experienced homelessness said “Ms. Price is my guardian angel. She always has my back.”

Another student, Dr. Lorin Crawford, now a professor at the Ivy League, Brown University said “I remember growing up and thinking if I wanted to make a million dollars, I had to be an athlete or a musician. What Black College Expo showed me is, no you can be an engineer.”

Dr. Price founded NCRF in 1999 in response to California Proposition 209, which banned affirmative action policies at state colleges, disrupting the already tenuous relationship between minorities and college admissions. On February 26th of the following year, NCRF hosted the First Annual Black College Expo™, an event that highlights Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) and other postsecondary institutions to provide admissions and scholarship information to students, parents, and other visitors in attendance.

At the expo students can get ACCEPTED on the spot, get their college application FEES waived and millions of dollars in SCHOLARSHIPS on the spot.

Emphatically, Dr. Price exclaims, “I just love seeing their eyes light up when they know they can do it. That’s my warm and fuzzy.” Although COVID-19 has created challenges to one-on-one contact, NCRF received calls daily from students needing help with food, housing, money or laptops, and with internet access so students could continue learning.
