“This program allowed for me to grow and see a different aspect of things and has helped me grow in not only being a successful student but a person as well, and I’m so grateful for the opportunity that was given to me!”

“When I initially arrived in the United States, I was filled with determination to succeed. I always knew college prep would be difficult, but when my school counselor informed me that she had nominated me for Green Halo Scholars and explained that they would assist me with all college matters, I was thrilled and excited because, at the very least, someone would be able to guide me through the college process.”
