Graduation season is almost upon us, and no one could be more proud of their graduates than we are here at Blavin Scholars. This year, we have eight graduating scholars – bringing our total number of graduates to twenty-eight amazing individuals.
To say we are proud of these graduates would be a huge understatement. Not only did these young people survive foster care and the difficult aging-out process, but they went on to achieve great things despite the odds being stacked high against them. They put in countless hours of hard work to make their college dreams come true. They persevered semester after semester and year after year. They were faced with a wide variety of obstacles along the way and came out winners. They are a strong and inspiring group of individuals who deserve to be recognized for their outstanding achievement:
Over the next few weeks, we will celebrate each of these graduates individually in our blog. We’ll share each graduate’s inspiring journey, their thoughts about the college experience, and their hopes and dreams for the future. We hope you’ll keep coming back to our blog to be uplifted by their success stories.
Thank you to our 2016 Blavin Scholar Graduates. Your futures are very bright and you have much to look forward to. We are honored and humbled to have been a part of your journey.
