We’ve officially kicked off the 2015-16 school year! During last week’s meeting, we all participated in “speed networking”...Imara Roose edition. Lexi, 10th grade, noted that “we got to tell each other about ourselves and I learned that we all had a lot in common.”
Our seniors are starting the college application process and our juniors are getting a head start on preparing. Our first topic of the semester was Preparation: Choosing a School and Professional Goals. Estephanie, 12th grade, “liked how the mentors explained each step of the application process and the personal stories they shared.”
We’d like to thank The Nationals for donating tickets to last week’s game...we had a great time! Go Nats! This was a great opportunity for the mentors and mentees to mingle and have a good time, for Kylen, 9th grade, “it made [her] feel good to be able to be [herself] around everyone.”
Our car wash was a great success! Thank you to everyone who stopped by to support us. We’d like to send a special thank you to the parents of Samantha, 9th grade, for donating our supplies. The chilly weather didn’t stop us and the mentees had “a lot of fun...enjoyed being able to talk to the mentors about a lot of things relevant to school, college" and much more, Kathleen, 10th grade.
We hope you will join us on Friday October 30, 2015 for our Benefit Performance, 7PM, in the ERHS Auditorium. We have a great line up of student performers from the University of Maryland and Howard University...it’s going to be a great show!
