Brooklyn Generation School Student Awarded Scholarship to College of Choice
As you read a few weeks ago, students and parents from Brooklyn Generation School visited a range of colleges. We are glad to give this update on one of the students who participated in that college tour!
Andrew originally planned to attend another SUNY school, but when he visited Daemen College in Buffalo, he discovered he liked the campus and the programs they offered. He was able to talk with an admissions officer while on the campus, and asked to apply even though he thought it might be too late to do so. Not only did he apply, but he was accepted. Not only was he accepted, he recently found out that he received a significant scholarship and financial aide package to attend!
We're very proud of Andrew and his accomplishments. He was one of this year's CARA youth leaders, and he also presented on behalf of the partnership at this year's Coalition of Schools Educating Boys of Color (COSEBOC) Conference a few weeks ago. More so, he saw an opportunity and pursued it. He is well prepared to take advantage of this college opportunity and make the best of the next four years at Daemen.
Please join us in wishing him good luck!
