Ella and Aja Graduated from High School

Last week, seven participants in the YWCA MotherLove program graduated from high school. They are Djenne Henry, Ella Smith, Ruth Argueta, Aja Pankey, Julie Clubb, Jaleesa Franks and Chelsea Finley.

Of note is the fact that Chelsea has received the Dell Scholars Program Scholarship, which will provide her with $20,000 to offset the cost of college. The Dell Scholars Program is a need based scholarship recognizes academic potential in lower-income and underserved students; students are evaluated based on their individual determination to succeed as well as their demonstration ability to overcome obstacles and challenges, not on academic record alone. Chelsea plans to attend Western Carolina University to study to be a physical therapist. Her mother has made it clear that these successes would not have been possible without the MotherLove program and MotherLove Director Tangela Bowman. We hope to post an interview with them on this blog soon.

MotherLove is a mentoring program for pregnant and parenting teens. If you would like to make a contribution to the MotherLove program in honor of these graduates, please click here.
