Students and parents at an elementary school in Arizona burst into applause when they learned that every ninth grader would receive a full scholarship to the college of their choice in the future.
At an assembly last week at Bernard Black Elementary, school district officials announced that the 63 third-graders would receive a full scholarship that would also cover tuition, books, room and board. . The generous donation was fully paid for by the Rosztoczy Foundation and its College Promise program.
“The goal, through the generous officer of this family, is that finances should not be an obstacle, that college should be an option for every third-year student here at Bernard Black,” said the superintendent of Roosevelt School District, Quintin Boyce.
