Student Spotlight - Mitha
After immigrating from Haiti when she was just six years old, Mitha settled in Delray Beach with her Aunt and Uncle.

Now a senior at Atlantic Community High School, Mitha embodies initiative and leadership among her peers and family members. She has attended Bound For College​'s after school tutoring sessions since her sophomore year and has even organized swimming lessons for Bound For College's summer program. Throughout her high school career, Mitha has maintained impeccable attendance, a heavy workload at Dunkin Donuts to save money for college and continues to serve as a mentor for her two younger cousins.
 
Mitha will attend Florida International University in the Fall of 2021 and aspires to become a physical therapist. 
Student Spotlight - Darrel
Darrel Creary was born and raised in Jamaica and came to the United States three years ago with his parents and disabled brother. Darrell entered BFC tutoring as a mid year sophomore. A diligent BFC student from the start, Darrel's mother always knew her son would achieve great things; and now he is bound for the University of Miami to study Broadcast Journalism.  What makes Darrel a standout student isn't just his academic excellence, but the fact that he received the prestigious Cooke College Scholarship award.  

In April, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation announced that 61 graduating high school seniors would receive a Cooke College Scholarship. This year’s recipients, who represent 26 states, will receive up to $40,000 annually to cover costs associated with their undergraduate education, as they go on to attend some of the nation’s top colleges and universities next fall.  Cooke College Scholars will receive financial support, along with ongoing educational advising from Foundation staff and access to a network of over 2,800 active Scholars and Alumni. Scholars will also receive opportunities for internships, study abroad, and access to graduate school funding.

Congratulations Darrel on this remarkable achievement!
