Significant Accomplishments Of Eleven High School Students Who Attend PGCPS

Hello Engaged Parents and Dedicated Educators,

One of our network members wanted to share the following information. I hope a few officials from PGCPS will be on hand to support the students.

Exciting news about the significant accomplishments of ten high school students who attend Prince George’s County Public Schools. The Posse Foundation is a college access and youth leadership program that recruits, identifies and trains extraordinary leaders from urban schools and sends them in multicultural teams (posses) to some of the top colleges in the country. Each student that is awarded the Posse Scholarship wins a four year, full-tuition scholarship worth more than $140,000 from one of our partner colleges.

Since opening in 2004, Posse D.C. has awarded 312 scholarships representing more than $30 million from Bucknell University, Grinnell College, Lafayette College, Sewanee: The University of the South, the University of Wisconsin Madison, and Pepperdine University. This fall, we had over 1,600 high school seniors nominated for the prestigious Posse Scholarship. Sixty two students were awarded the Posse Scholarship this year. I am proud to share with you that Prince George’s County Public Schools were represented by the following Posse Scholar Recipients:
· Yorman A, Bladensburg High School Grinnell College
· Aaron B.., Oxon Hill High School, Sewanee: The University of the South
· Ashley B., Eleanor Roosevelt High School Lafayette College
