Graduates

 

Graduates/Alumni

The classes of 2015 and 2016 had a 100% graduation rate and 98% of those graduates matriculated in college following their high school graduation.   One graduate joined the military.              .

The S/PA class of 2016 amassed hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarship money to assist with their college tuition, without which many could not afford to attend college.

Student/Partner Alliance is very interested in all of our graduates.  Please let us know what you have been doing since graduating high school.   Often, we feature our graduates’ successes on our website and in our quarterly newsletter.  We look forward to hearing from you and including your news in our eNews!

We sincerely hope that our graduates will return to the program and help provide a quality education to another deserving student.  Some alumna have returned as mentors in recent years.  They provide a unique mentoring experience especially when they return to mentor a student at their alma mater.

Read more about our new and very successful  Student/Partner Alliance Young Professionals Network  (YPN).  Our alumni mentors are members of the YPN and enjoy meeting other mentoring “young professionals”.
