Alexander speaks to GEAR UP graduates
But after the week at the Ruston campus, the youngster has set himself a goal.
"I want to be a computer engineer or an architect," he said. "And if Tech will give me a scholarship, I'd love to come here."
Williams was one of more than 100 youngsters who took part in GEAR UP on the Tech campus.
The GEAR UP program is a discretionary grant program designed to increase the number of low-income students who are prepared to enter and succeed in postsecondary education, Glenn Beer, director of the Science and Technology Education Center, said.
