My favorite part about being a Reach Scholar is that I get to meet new people and help within my community.
REACH gives me the opportunity to immediately attend a 4-year college after high school, rather than beginning at a community college and transferring.
I used to think I wouldn’t get into a good college, but now I know I will.
It has given me hope for the future, which motivates me to do better in school and my grades have increased.
Now there is hope. A hope of having extra help with college.
It makes me go harder knowing I got something waiting on me after high school.
I can now rest assured that I will not end up in a lot of debt and will receive financial help with my college career.
I just love REACH. This is my 37th year as an educator, and honestly, REACH wins when it comes to the most rewarding thing I’ve done.
I’m thankful for getting a chance to show what I am capable of doing.
To see Scholars succeed when they could otherwise choose to take a less desirable path is inspiring.
