Thanks to all the donors – $43,000 in Scholarship Funds Raised!
(see below for original letter describing the CHALLENGE)
Our community has experienced incredible challenges over the past few months and our most vulnerable families have been hit hardest. Our GHS AVID students and their families have worked so hard, with the support of the GPS and the Greenwich Alliance, to make their college and career dreams a reality. Now we fear that the dreams of these recent graduates may crumble under the weight of economic pressures and insurmountable student debt. Many students simply will not have the means to enroll in college in the fall as planned.
Our Board is collectively committed to ensuring that the present challenges do not prevent these most deserving of students from realizing their college dreams, and has resolved to take immediate action. The members of our Board and Advisory Council have pledged an additional $25,000 to the Greenwich Alliance Scholarship Fund to protect the college plans of our AVID students. We challenge our community to join us in this effort by matching our commitment with donations totaling $25,000 between now and July 31st.
GHS AVID graduates must continue the tradition of success in rigorous four-year postsecondary institutions and become responsible leaders in our community.
