My Students

Working with over 200 11th and 12th-grade students, their grit, drive, and proactiveness rivals many of their peers, even though more than 70% of students derive from low-income backgrounds.

As the Director of College Counseling at East Side Community High School, I have guided more than 400 young men and women for the last five years down the path to college.

By allowing them to break the cycle of poverty to not only provide stability and financial security for themselves and their families.

My Project

In order to create and foster continuous upward mobility amongst this population, technology is a crucial requirement for students to work on their college essays, scholarships, and college applications. Currently, there is not enough technology in the college office to meet the demand of working with 100 juniors and seniors, respectively.

Your donation will provide new technology for my students to realize their potential and value by being able to apply to college.

This will put in motion a student(s) taking the first steps to raise themselves and their families towards an upper echelon socially and financially.

My students and I thank you for your generosity. THANK YOU!!!

Grades 9-12
More than half of students from low‑income households
