Friday First-Gen Focus

Submitted by Steven Dandaneau

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."
