Each day at School on Wheels, we are honored to work with such fantastic, talented kids at tutoring. This week, we thought we would take the time to celebrate two students, Marie and Aaron, and the great things they have been accomplishing! One of our Program Coordinators, Ieva, was so proud of these students that she interviewed them and recommended that we share their stories with all of you!

Ieva is passionate about our youth!

Marie, a 5th grade student, was recently nominated by her school for a Carson Scholarship! Only one student may be nominated from each school, and to be considered students must have at least a 3.75 GPA and be actively involved in their community. This prestigious scholarship, which is open to students in grades four through eleven, would give Marie a $1,000 scholarship to apply towards her college education. We are so proud of her for being chosen as the nominee for her school – good luck Marie!

Congratulations to Marie, Aaron and all our students. It’s great to see students overcoming obstacles to achieve successes like these.
