Mary Fulé could do the math, and she didn’t like what the numbers told her. Too many incoming freshmen and transfer students at Northern Arizona University were struggling with math placement, which is Fulé’s domain at the Flagstaff school. As a result, some students fell behind in their progress toward a degree; some changed majors, abandoning long-held dreams; some even dropped out.

Jalil did all that we tell our young people they need to do in order to succeed. He graduated from the Fremont Unified School District and went on to attend De Anza Community College. He worked hard, got good grades, and transferred to San José State University.
