It has been making headlines in the news more often these days. Several diligent students are getting accepted into a few dozen colleges and universities and receiving nearly a million dollars in scholarships.
Kayla Willis, a former student at Westlake High School in Atlanta, Georgia, was accepted into 33 colleges and offered close to a million dollars in scholarships. Michael Love, a former student at Cornerstone Health and Technology in Detroit, was accepted into 41 colleges and earned over $300,000 in scholarships. Dylan Chidick, a former student at Henry Snyder High School in New Jersey who was temporarily homeless, was accepted into 17 colleges, including the college of his dreams, The College of New Jersey. These students beat the odds and have successfully entered college.
The latest teen to join this inspirational trend is our very own phenomenal student, Chase Patterson. A senior at Greenforest Christian Academy, he has been accepted into 14 colleges and has received nearly a million dollars in college scholarship offers.
With the college preparation he received through the College Readiness 101 workbook, Chase is on his way to his mom's alma mater, Xavier University, in New Orleans, Louisiana, in the fall of 2021. Chase plans to follow in his mom's footsteps and pursue a medical degree. He plans to major in Biology Pre-Medicine. Chase is a member of the National Honors Society, Beta Club and recently became a member of the NAACP. He has taken two college courses and has earned the highest Advanced Placement Chemistry exam score in his high school. He also plays varsity basketball and runs for the varsity track team. Chase has also served as a volunteer for organizations such as Junior Counselor at the Steve Harvey Mentoring Program for Young Men, Hosea Feed the Hungry, and Toys for Tots.
Many high school students will be preparing for college this fall and will need to have guidance to help them so that they can be as successful as Chase. This is why I developed the College Readiness 101 series to keep them on track, from 8th grade to 12th grade. These books help students successfully prepare for college.
The College Readiness 101 book series is a passport to college preparatory success. It is designed not only to help students on their journey to college success; but also to help parents understand the process. You no longer have to navigate this arduous transition from high school to college alone.
