Next Stop College for ATG Grads
They did it! Three alumni of our Cypress Hills musical theatre program in Brooklyn graduated from high school this month, making their families and ATG community proud. Nelson, Kristina, and Cathy were among the first students to complete our Audition Prep program four years ago, which helped them earn admission to competitive high schools outside of their neighborhood.
Cathy and Kristina both graduated from Talent Unlimited High School as Arista National Honor Society scholars, where they both won TDF Theatre awards; Kristina also won the $5,000 Tony Bennett College Scholarship. Cathy will be attending SUNY-Oswego this fall, while Kristina will be going to Emerson College in Boston.
Nelson graduated from Brooklyn Technical High School, and will be traveling to Thailand this summer through the UBS NextGen Leaders program, which provides a comprehensive college success program for young men from under-resourced neighborhoods. In the fall, Nelson will attend NYU.
Congratulations to our students for all of their achievements!
