On Thursday, September 12, 2019, Extended Opportunities Program and Services (EOPS) celebrated their 50th anniversary to honor the program’s long-standing history at Crafton and across the State. Program alumni who have gone on to be successful in their career fields of choice inspired current EOPS students.

Tina Gimple, Administrative Services Coordinator and part-time faculty member at Crafton shared her experience as a student. “I had been here about a year and I was struggling, struggling financially, struggling to buy books.” She continued, “EOPS changed the trajectory of my life. I credit them with my success.”
