Western Illinois University has received a $70,000 contribution from the AT&T Foundation to support the Positive Achievement and Creativity Equals Righteous Success program, a mentoring, academic and volunteer-based program developed through school and community efforts and Western Illinois University-Quad-Cities to help at-risk ninth-grade students in the Rock Island School District.

PACERS delivers hands-on learning and professional development opportunities for students in the counselor education program, which embodies the university’s core value of educational opportunity. The program also provides a valuable service to at-risk high school students in the region.
