Angelique Holmes

  • Student Success Counselor, Serving McKeesport-Middle School

Angelique Holmes first encountered TRIO Programs while earning her bachelor’s degree as an undergraduate clerical assistant for Upward Bound. Nearly a decade later, she was excited to join the Penn State Talent Search team in 2023 as the middle school counselor serving McKeesport Area School District. Here she loves getting to interact with students as they stop by her classroom, and this has become her favorite part of the job. Prior to rejoining TRIO, Angelique worked as an international educator in Shanghai, China, where in the process of breaking down cultural and language barriers, she found a passion for helping students consider every possibility through exposure to a broad range of topics and global perspectives. This passion continues with her Talent Search students, knowing that through building mutual trust and respect, students will have the opportunity to be exposed to a variety of cultures, career options, and educational opportunities.
