FOUNDATION FOR STUDENTS RISING ABOVE
September 26, 2010

I was lucky enough to hear about Students Rising Above from a friend a few years ago. Education has always been important to me, so it was a great fit from the start. After participating in the planning process for the annual Gala fundraising event, I was able to meet some of the students and hear their stories firsthand at the event itself. It was such a moving experience, and solidified my commitment to the organization. Meeting the students and seeing them interact with their advisors and mentors, it becomes very clear that the success of Students Rising Above stems from the fact that it is so much more than a scholarship program. It is the ongoing support, encouragement and resources available to these students that make all the difference.

The Great!
