The staging area at Van Horn High School (my alma mater) was well organized – there were 40-60 vehicles with signs, streamers, balloons and words of praise for our Van Horn scholarship recipient. As our parade caravanned with honking horns, travelling 3-4 miles to our recipient’s home, onlookers were taking notice of the physical presence of KC Scholars.
Suddenly and powerfully, this surreal awareness became numbing and awe inspiring…at this moment, KC Scholars was present in our neighborhood and was honoring one of our students with a life changing, transformational opportunity.
As a donor I was so gratified and thankful to be rewarded with this experience. These tearful moments of pure joy reinforced that KC Scholars is a remarkable, sustainable educational pathway to change lives and communities – and I want to be a part of this!
