"College is very daunting for two reasons: One there is the work involved and second is the cost involved," Jacoby said in an interview after meeting with Kirtland Central students.
Kirtland Central High students listen during a presentation on college admissions and strategy Oct. 5, 2014 at the 39th Annual New Mexico College Fair at the UNM Pit."The reason we so much believe that college is necessary is that it gives students the ability to earn more, and control what they're doing with the lives.
The jobs that are going to be more available are going to be based on getting a college degree.
"In order to get there, they need to have good grades because that is what is going to allow them both to succeed in college, but also get the financial benefits to afford college," Jacoby said.
When asked if there was a certain mindset necessary to get into a college and complete a degree, Jacoby added:
"There are 4,000 colleges out there in America.
There are colleges for all the high school students who want to go.
It's not that you have to be an amazing student … part of it is this belief that you can go, you will go, you will get it done.
"We just worry that students are underselling themselves," Jacoby added.
