Round Lake High School is so grateful for the opportunity to partner with the College of Lake
County’s TRiO Educational Talent Search program. Penina Noonan, Student Services Specialist
with ETS, created an initiative for the 2013-2014 school year to conduct biweekly scholarship
workshops in the library at Round Lake High School. “Through ETS, I had the privilege of working
Lori Berdenis
with Misael during every scholarship workshop for seven months. He rarely missed an opportunity
Vice President
to work on a scholarship opportunity with me.
As a result Misael won five scholarships,

Annette Negrete McGinley provides,” commented Noonan.
