The work that you do is absolutely critical. By providing financial assistance to college-bound students of color, you touch the lives not only of each of those students but of their families and communities as well. And that has a transformative effect on our success as a nation. In addition, your efforts to help families in need - with annual support during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday seasons, toy drives and partnerships with other community-based organizations - make a difference in the lives of so many and inspire others to follow your example.
