Going to college can seem impossible when you don't see people like you doing it. So we created murals of graduates in the disadvantaged neighborhoods where they they grew up. Instead of seeing celebrities or people who have passed away, people see a WGU grad from their neighborhood to show future generations what's possible.

SAN ANTONIO, TX - JACQUELINE BECERRA
Our first mural features WGU grad Jacqueline Becerra, who grew up in the West Side of San Antonio. The mural is placed on Botellos Food Store, a neighborhood market across the street from project housing and adjacent to a local high school and middle school. More murals coming soon in other cities across the US.
