At Pearl-Cohn High School a large number of our students have family backgrounds with little to no college education. Therefore, the students are in need of college/career exploration, preparation, and application. Vanderbilt Students for Students has been this kind of tremendous resource at Pearl-Cohn since the fall of 2006. Members of Students for Students come to Pearl-Cohn and provide the students one-on-one tutoring, ACT prep, college application guidance, and the opportunity to interact with role models close to their own age. I applaud the Vanderbilt Students for Students organization for being a real-life example of the value of serving your community by giving a hand-up as they give a hand-out!
