UWM Grad Uses Own Experiences to Help Guide High School Students

Tre’quan Martin, School of Education Adult, Continuing and Higher Education Administration student.

Tre’quan Martin finished high school a year early with a $100,000 scholarship to attend Morehouse College. After overextending himself with extracurriculars, Martin narrowly missed the required GPA to maintain his scholarship. He returned home to Milwaukee where he discovered a new home at UW-Milwaukee and connected with Milwaukee Public Schools to advise students on scholarships and admissions and serve as a role model.

After finishing his first degree at UW-Milwaukee, he is now wrapping up a master’s in administrative leadership in adult, continuing and higher education administration and plans to continue advising students to show them how much they can achieve.
