From athlete to mentor, UNI football alum De’Veon Harris helping Cedar Rapids students

Today Harris, a first-generation college graduate who came from a low-income background, is helping Cedar Rapids students reach their goals through his work with Educational Talent Search - a TRIO program that was recently expanded to the Cedar Rapids School District.
