Vanderbilt Students for Students is the best program a high school student could ever wish for. The program is to designed to help one Pearl- Cohn high school student successfully attend and graduate from college. VSS assists the student academically and financially. I Aqueelah Stashon Ellzey was the scholarship recipient for the year of 2008. The members of Vanderbilt Students for Students are so dedicated and supportive to all Pearl- chon Students. They are hand zone people and very active in their duties. Without Vanderbilt Students for Students, I will not be able to attend college. Rob the president of VSS as well as others have encouraged me to believe in myself without the Vss program I will be terribly confused and lost. I appreciate all of their effort and support they have established towards their program.
