The president of Keene State College is participating in a White House summit exploring how to increase college completion, particularly for first-generation, low-income and underrepresented students.
Anne Huot will join President Barack Obama and others Thursday at the White House College Opportunity Summit. The conference brings together colleges and universities, business leaders, nonprofit groups and others working to support more opportunities for students.
More than 40 percent of Keene State students are the first in their families to attend a four-year college. Huot says one of her main responsibilities is to make education accessible to a wide variety of potential students.
