Admission Possible officially changes its name
Admission Possible, the college access and success nonprofit organization, has officially changed its name to College Possible. The name change will support the growth of the organization as it expands in Milwaukee and nationally. 
“Our belief is that when college is possible, anything is possible and our new name fully captures that,” said Edie Turnbull, College Possible Milwaukee executive director. “We’re continuing our work to challenge cynicism through idealism and using our effective model to prove that your income level should not dictate your education level. We’re just doing it under a new banner.”
In recognition of the name change implementation, College Possible launched its new website as well as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn profiles earlier this week.
“We want to invite individuals from every walk of life to get involved in opening a world of opportunity for our young people, our families and our communities,” said Turnbull. “As we expand our intensive college access and success services, we will need partners in that work.”
