    My name is Whitney Allen. I am the bilingual Parent Academy for Student Success (PASS) coordinator for Westminster Public Schools and run a bilingual program so parents can understand more clearly "what they need to know" to better support their students going to college and beyond. The program also helps parents become strong and respectful advocates for themselves and their students so they can participate fully in the success of their child, the district and the community. This is my third year in the Future Center serving all parents and students as they prepare for, and transition to, college, the workforce or a combination thereof. I also with parent/student college tours and FAFSA nights among other things. For fun, I like to read, ski, cycle, salsa dance, paint and spend time with my own two amazing teenagers!
