Be a Student’s Friend
For any young person, the positive support and involvement of adults makes an important difference. For the fourteen OLQA students who receive the Be a Student’s Friend (BASF) scholarship through the Inner-City Scholarship Fund, knowing that they have a sponsor who cares about them — even if they have never met — encourages them to work hard in school.
As Kristen, an OLQA 4th grade student, said, “I like telling my sponsor all about my school in the letters I write to him. I want him to know that I’m studying really hard this year.” Thank you to all of the sponsors who support OLQA students in achieving their dreams.
