PEER and WISE make a difference
from The Newsstand
Serita Acker is working to expand two programs that help encourage diverse groups of students to study science, technology, engineering and math — and stick with it once they start. Acker began working with the programs PEER and WISE in 1995 and now serves as director over both organizations. PEER stands for Programs for Educational Enrichment and Retention and reaches out to minorities but welcomes all who would like to be involved.
