For the Ref C and D Project: Shot on 10/13/2005 in Denver - Brandon Williams (cq) meets with Phebe Lassiter (cq), a financial aid counselor, on the Auraria campus in Denver about his tuition payments. Brandon is a single parent (he has a three-year-old son Xavier and has joint custody), has a full-time job, and takes classes online through the Community College of Denver. Phebe Lassiter, a single parent of two, graduated from Metropolitan State College of Denver with the help of a privately funded counseling program for minorities called Pacesetter. Brandon is struggling to get through his courses both time wise and financially, while Phebe credits the Pacesetter program with her success, saying it "allowed those who are poor and those who are ignored to rise above."
