In my last post I blogged about a girl who was struggling to find financial aid for college. Despite her excellent academic, artistic, and personal credentials, she was rejected by some colleges that surely admitted less impressive, but richer, kids. However, she only needed one or two really good chances, and she got them. She was accepted by two excellent institutions, including the truly outstanding Grinnell College.
Congratulations to a very deserving young woman! And congrats to Grinnell, too, for the vision to recognize her!
I’m not sure all great students get so great an opportunity, but this story, at least, is heartening.
