On A Mission To Change Young Lives, One Student At A Time

By Matt Kroschel

 September "People You Can Count On" Recipient

Grand Junction- In the news businesses we hear it all the time: Why is the news always so depressing? But this month we are launching our brand new segment, "People You Can Count On." It is our chance to highlight amazing people in our community.

On the campus of Colorado Mesa University, mentor Fran Morales admits although the university signs her pay checks, it is the students who she works for. Day in and day out, her job is to be that person to go to if students need help adjusting to life away from home and in the college classroom.

The students come in to her first floor office with everything from homesickness to teacher conflict issues. Morales in turns helps them work through their issues and in the mean time builds life long relationships with 'her kids.'

This month our partners at Sky Ute Casino and the NewsChannel Five family are proud to honor Fran Morales with the "People You Can Count On" Award.

You can nominate someone you know who is doing something special in the community on this website go to this link and fill out the submission form:

Fran Morales received a wonderful weekend get-away price package from our friends over at the Sky Ute Casino. Catch the next winner the first Thursday of October.
