“It is within our reach to open the doors to college for many hundreds of young people. If Access can do this, it will be a powerful instrument for hope and enrichment for our community and for the people who need it most.”
– Frank Batten, Sr., Co-Founder, Access College Foundation
As Access enters its 30th year and we reflect back on our history, we are so proud of the amount of students we have been able to help with the college process. Frank Batten’s words, from the first newspaper article on Access in 1988, still ring true today as we continue on our mission of providing students with the path to attend and complete college.
While it is important for us to remember our past, we are also excited to look toward our future, which includes a new brand, an updated logo, brighter colors and a new tagline!
Our new branding is more contemporary and exciting but also, reflects who we are. It speaks directly to what we do and reminds our supporters they are changing the lives of young people and enhancing the future of our community. The mortarboard in our logo highlights how to assist students through high school graduation, college graduation and into the path beyond.
We’re ready to take on the next 30 years!
