Passing the Baton is a guide I wrote of lessons learned and told through my eyes as a 1st generation college student; also as a career higher education professional dedicated to the recruitment and retention of college students. 

In the process of both scenarios, I figured out how to master the college experience to produce results successfully semester after semester until graduation.

I have shared my expertise coaching students through the process of how to prepare, manage and utilize their day to day experiences to become productive college students.

This book will give you a blueprint of how to approach this challenging and empowering next step in your life.
