Dhruv Patel, Most Enriched Participant 2019

"Project Success is an exceptional program that helped me through my academic career here at Illinois Valley Community College (IVCC). The highly experienced counselors gave me valuable advice that led me on the right path. Project Success also has a Leadership Team organized to help the community when in need. As a member of the leadership team, I had the opportunity to serve the community in raising funds for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Toys for Tots and also helped in collecting food for our IVCC Micro Pantry. Project Success taught me how to be a team player, I learned new things and played a vital role in making my college career successful!"
