Friday First-Gen Focus
This week's film features Ciera Cathey and is titled "Unwavering Family Support." Like the previous segments from the College of Education's "A Walk in My Shoes: First Generation College Students," Cathey's story is, as it were, must-see-TV.
For more about first-generation college students like Cathey, check out the newly published e-book available from K-State's New Prairie Press and authored by Jeong-Hee Kim, Texas Tech University; Amanda Morales, Kansas State University; Rusty Earl, Kansas State University; and Sandra Avalos, Kansas State University. It is titled "Being the 'First': A Narrative Inquiry into the Funds of Knowledge of First Generation College Students in Teacher Education."
