Know a rising senior attending a NYC public or private school who should be nominated for this four-year full tuition scholarship?
Posse is looking for its next group of talented Scholars: motivated, dynamic, actively engaged students who believe they belong at the nation's best colleges and universities. I have the pleasure of nominating students for this program on behalf of Brooklyn, Jack and Jill.
Interest Meeting: Monday, May 23rd @ 6PM (RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org for location details)
*Posse started because of one student who said, "I never would have dropped out of college if I had my Posse with me." That simple idea, of sending a group (posse or 'squad' in today's parlance) of students together to college so they could back each other up," became the impetus for a program that today has sent thousands of students to top colleges and universities throughout the United States.
