College Signing Night 2016

College Signing Night is when Golder College Prep Seniors announce what university they will attend in the fall (think NFL draft!). It's an exciting night made more special with the announcement of our the laptop recipients. There, we're able to speak about our mom here, and really pass along her love of technology to these four students.

These two outstanding seniors topped 21 competing entries to be our first recipients of MacBook Pro's via the fund. TRETF conducted an anonymous essay contest at Mariel's school Golder College Prep in Chicago. This Noble Network high school is committed to helping students get admitted to college and providing the tools to succeed in their educational careers. Allany and Emilio impressed the TRETF committee with their abilities to face life's hardships with resilience and determination to succeed on their own as they begin their college experience.
