A Successful Milestone for Goal Card Students

The RISE Foundation had the opportunity to celebrate with 6 (out of the 11 inductees) Goal Card students who were inducted in the Booker T. Washington High School's National Honor Society for the 2012/2013 school year.  With a total of 17 members, the 11 new members were eager to have such an honor placed on their academic record because it took hard work, commitment, and a focused mind to reach this milestone.

The majority of the students inducted live in the 38126 zip code/community, and have far exceeded the expectations of their peers, as well as some of their parents.  One particular young lady, Cermeshia has worked tirelessly to succeed in all that she has been afforded.  As an exceptional scholar, faithful band member, and aspiring actress/singer, Cermeshia has begun to see the fruits of her labor.  She has had doors opened because of her positive attitude, optimism and committment to her own success.  She had the opporunity to participate in the Hattiloo Theater and the RISE Foundation's partnership with the theater's Nutcracker production. She participated in several performances with her school band, and is now a newly inducted Honor Society member.  Cermeshia became involved in the Goal Card Program believing that it would help her focus on her education and set her on a career path.  She exemplifies the core values of the Goal Card Program, believing that Education + Incentives = Success.

Cermeshia and the rest of the Honor Society members are now preparing for a school beautification project in the lobby of Booker T. Washington High School which is also an atrium.  In partnership with other Goal Card students at the school and Alumni supporters, this time next year the atrium will not only have beautiful green plans but  improved air quality in the school as well.  The students are looking forward  to making great things happen during the spring semester!
