Allison Hills becomes the first barista accepted to ASU through the Starbucks College Achievement Plan. As a shift supervisor, she was one of the first to learn of the new college plan and applied for ASU as soon as she got home that afternoon. A few months later, she received her acceptance letter. Her mother says:
I always knew it was a good company, but now it’s directly changing our family in a personal way. Ali’s going to reach her goals and my dream for her is coming true. Imagine all the other families that are in our shoes. It’s absolutely amazing.
