Girl in front of benchWe are thrilled to announce that Asia was recently accepted into her dream school, Marist High School, for the 2019-2020 school year!

This accomplishment is especially meaningful because Marist is one of the most academically rigorous schools in the city, and Asia said she is ready for the challenge.

“I’m excited about being accepted in Marist,” she said. “It’s one of the top schools in the state and I think it will put me on the right track for a brighter future.”

Supervisor of School Resources Brittany Terrell agreed that this achievement was putting Asia on a great path for future success.

“Asia is such a bright and hardworking student,” she said. “Her perseverance this school year and determination made this victory that much sweeter! So proud that she will be a Marist Redhawk—this opportunity will open so many doors for collegiate opportunities.”

Great job, Asia! We are so proud of you!

Recently, one of our young men, Johnathain, and Post-Secondary Options and Career Resources Kelly Cochrane went to Lawrence Hall School for Johnathain’s scholarship ceremony, where he was presented with the Melissa Brockway Scholarship. Near their residential facility, Lawrence Hall operates a therapeutic day school, which Johnathain attended.

This award is usually for $1,000, but his principal Vicki Hicks said that Lawrence Hall’s CEO, Kara Teeple, advocated for Johnathain to receive more–$3,000. This money can go toward school to cover the costs of books and tuition.

“Johnathain was grateful for his teachers at Lawrence Hall and was surprised when he found out he received the scholarship,” Kelly said. “He thanked his principal Ms. Hicks for all her hard work and for all the time they had together at Lawrence Hall.”

Johnathain and Kelly had a great night at the award ceremony, and Kelly expressed her excitement for his accomplishment.

“Johnathain should be proud for all the hard work that he accomplished at Lawrence Hall, and I am excited to see what comes next for him,” she said.

Congratulations Johnathain! We are so proud of you!
