“GEAR UP has helped me so much in high school from tutoring to my college choices. In college they have helped me with time management and scholarships that helped paid off my tuition with a lot leftover.” 



Krystyn is from the Bluff area and graduated from San Juan High School. She is now enjoying studying at USU Blanding and is looking forward to learning about how different societies and communities work and communicate on her upcoming Study Abroad. Her advice to future college students is to study, prepare, work hard to succeed.
