AT THE DS METCO SCHOLARSHIP FUND, OUR WORK CONTINUES
When DS schools closed in March, the DS METCO Scholarship Fund mobilized the Emergency Funds Campaign and partnered with the DS schools. We expanded our Fund’s mission because we believe that if some of us need help, all of us should care.
We are proud to announce that even after halting our own fundraising for three months to run the Emergency Funds Campaign and cancelling our annual fundraiser due to COVID-19, we were still able to:
Present scholarship awards to four DS METCO seniors.
Present the inaugural Juretha Olivia Cooper Memorial Scholarship, an award focused on academics, service and leadership honoring the mother and grandmother of alumni.
Pilot a mentoring program run by DS METCO alumni on our Board, which matches alumni with current DS METCO students.
Please consider a donation to the DS METCO Scholarship Fund, if you’re able. https://dsmetcoscholarshipfund.org
