2019 Scholarship Finalist: Kashawnna
Kashawnna has been a solid presence in our program at Dunbar High School, working both at Walker Jones and Center City - Shaw. While very shy at first, Kashawnna has worked with program staff to speak up and confidently lead her students. During 11th grade, Kashawnna earned a promotion to Lead Tutor.
In addition to her work tutoring with Reach, Kashawnna has been part of our College Mentorship Program. She hopes to continue her education at either Bowie State (MD) or Norfolk State (VA). In her essay, Kashawnna told us, "Reach influenced me to be a better role model for kids."
Congratulations to Kashawnna, one of six finalists for our 2019 Reach Scholarships. Stay tuned all week to meet the other finalists and learn how Reach has positively influenced their lives. Support our seniors through the #ReachTurns10 campaign by making a gift today!
