OPRF Local Scholarship Recipient

We were back at all of our Alma mater last night to award our OPRF local scholarship to the deserving senior, Emma Vejcik. Emma is deciding between Smith College and Carnegie Mellon University to pursue interdisciplinary studies as she is interested in studying both art and computer science. More women is STEM! Yes! 

Thanks to your generous support of the Terri Race Tech Fund, our forever-huskie mom’s legacy lives on in these bright, young students!

Golder College Prep Laptop Scholarships

Hello Panthers Both Present and Past!

Thank you to all 48 of you for applying for the 2017 Laptop Scholarship! 

#WINNING! Featuring our four 2017 Terri Race Tech Fund Golder Laptop Recipients - 2 Golder Alumni, Jasmine Pagan and Christopher Lorenzi and 2 Graduating Seniors, Galilea Landeros and Bryan Villegas. 

Chris just graduated from Lake Forest College this year and will be attending graduate school to study Student Services, hoping to make a difference in the lives of future first generation college students. Jasmine was just accepted to the Mortuary Science program at Malcom X college - congratulations! Both of these students were thrilled to win a MacBook Pro to support them as they continue their studies.

Galilea and Bryan will graduate this Sunday from Golder. Bryan will take his talents to University of Illinois on full scholarship and Galilea will attend Lycoming University in Pennsylvania. Both students have worked so hard through their years at Golder to deserve this.

Thank you to all the supporters of the Tech Fund for making this possible! Your support truly changes these students' lives and makes the transition to college and beyond a successful one.
