Congratulations to PAIR's Graduating Seniors!
This month, we celebrated the high school graduation of 18 students in our Leaders and Scholars programs! A few of them are pictured above and below in their caps and gowns.
To put that number in perspective, 90 percent of our high school seniors graduated. Two more are finishing up their testing or course requirements and will graduate in August and next January. That means 100 percent of seniors in PAIR last year will complete high school and go on to college - far above the numbers for Houston schools overall.
early half of PAIR graduates will start their college careers at Houston Community College, while others will be attending University of Houston, University of Texas at San Antonio, Texas A&M University, Prairie View A&M University, and University of Houston-Downtown. The Class of 2018 students have so far been awarded $70,500 in scholarships.
Hooray for the graduates. We are so proud of you and look forward to all that you will accomplish!!
