It’s been three years since our journey to the Top 25 began, and our goals are no longer just numbers in a bar chart or graph. Our journey has sparked a great energy that is improving our students’ experience and yielding tangible results.

Part of the journey is accountability, and throughout this report, you will see where we have had success and where we still have work to do to reach our aggressive goals.

Join us on our journey,

Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek
