My Students

My graduating seniors are amazing. Many of them come from disadvantaged backgrounds and work outside of school to help support their families.

I am impressed by these students who maintain good grades while balancing several other responsibilities.Most of these students will be the first in their family to attend college next fall.

The majority of this group will declare a STEM major at their chosen university. This project is a great way to send them off as they start the next chapter in their life.

My Project

Seniors work so hard to get to the point where they can choose which college they want to attend. I would like to provide something to help them be successful in college.

Providing a student with a computer would be one less major expense for the student as they prepare to attend college.

Giving a student a dorm microwave or bed sheets will allow them to stretch their money and focus on learning.

Many families many not be able to financially support their child. These things can help alleviate the student's worry, the parent's financial hardship, and allow the student to succeed.
