Say Yes to Success!
Alexis Newman, Greensboro College Class of 2021

There was no hiding Alexis Newman’s talent on the diamond. Her big brother played baseball, so she was always in the stands. When she started to play, people noticed. “Coach Fister left me a voicemail; she was interested in my coming to Greensboro College.” Newman knew she wanted to go to college, but she hadn’t considered the small private college. “I came to tour the school, and I loved it."

Newman didn’t think a private school was within her reach.  “When we went to Greensboro College, we talked to financial aid, and they told me about the Say Yes Guilford Scholarship.” That sealed the deal, and on May 8th Newman walked across the lawn at Greensboro College as a graduate. “I am so blessed,” she says.
