Students honored at BMS

Bethune Middle School had the opportunity to honor six eighth grade students Tuesday, November 19 with a REACH Scholarship. This scholarship is a needs-based mentoring program providing promising students with support to graduate from high school and achieve collegiate success. REACH scholars will be paired with a mentor who models positive behavior and provides the student with knowledge, advice, guidance, and support related to education and beyond. Academic coaches will help ensure scholars stay on track to succeed. Qualifying REACH Scholars will be awarded a financial scholarship upon graduating from high school. Each student is given a list of colleges and tech schools willing to match or double the scholarship upon being accepted. Students honored were Justice Edwards, Christopher Galler, Pilar Jones, Heather Milton, Aunica Pafford, and Andia Williams.
