My Students

I see the potential of what they can become. Each student brings a unique perspective and voice to the learning environment. They choose to be in class every day and do their best. I can see them making strides toward the greatest expectations of what they want to be. They need to be nurtured given energy, faith, compassion, time and support to reach their potential as our future leaders.

Our seniors attend a selective enrollment high school on the south side of Chicago where they will be graduating this spring.

Last year over 92% of our students were accepted to a college or 4-year university of their choice. This year we are working hard to increase that number. I want to support these students by providing them with some essential items to help with the transition to college life.

These students are excited about the prospect of going away to school and the majority will be attending college in the fall. It is important to send them off with a starter kit to help jump-start their path to excellence in college.

My Project

The opportunity for our seniors to start off college with a little less stress due to the items that were donated will give them peace of mind as well as their parents that one thing is checked off the list among the many more to complete. Providing mattress pads, hampers, pillows, surge protectors and other items will show that they are cared for and they are wished a happy future and show that we are proud of their accomplishments. Many of these students will be first in their families to attend college. Our school has a student population of 80% low income which is why your support will be appreciated.
