• TRIO Educational Talent Search (ETS) Program


    Greetings, Cheyenne Desert Shields students!! My name is Iradzeni “Zeni” Salazar, and I am the coordinator for the UNLV TRIO Educational Talent Search (ETS) program at Cheyenne High School. In case you are unfamiliar with me or our awesome program, ETS is a college prep program focused on helping increase the number of first-generation, low-income, and/or underrepresented students to be prepared to access and complete post-secondary enrollment. This program is designed to motivate, support, and inform students and their parents about the importance of early preparation for continued success in education after high school. ETS is here to support and assist all its participants with a successful transition through high school and to the post-secondary institution of their choice. The program supports students during the school day with the following FREE services:

    • Academic Assistance (including support for AP classes)

    • Career and College Exploration

    • SAT/ACT Assistance

    • Tutoring Assistance

    • Scholarship Search Assistance

    • Financial literacy/FAFSA assistance

    • College Admissions Assistance

    • College/Campus tours

    • Various other workshops/cultural events


    To participate, students in grades 9-12 need to have an overall GPA of 2.0 or higher and complete and submit a TRIO application. Applications can be completed online or picked up in room 212. If you have any questions, stop by and see me or contact me via email.
