Subject: The latest from Campus Bound Scholars

2015 Campus Bound Scholar Chandell Phifer II with mentor Ken Ray at the moment they realize both chose CUNY (though a few years apart!) Chandell, a Mt. Vernon High School graduate, plans to study biomedical engineering to help find a cure for cancer.
We’re so proud to introduce our outstanding group of ten 2015 Campus Bound Scholars and their mentors. These students, chosen from all over Westchester County, will receive individualized mentoring and support throughout freshman year to ensure a successful transition to college life. Stay tuned to hear their stories and follow their progress as they make their way through freshman year. 
Albert Hernandez is so proud of his college ID! A graduate of Fox Lane HS, Albert relocated from the Dominican Republic with his father only 5 years ago. He spoke little English but his huge heart, outgoing personality, and commitment to hard work impressed everyone. Albert plans to focus on law enforcement, criminal justice, or military studies at Kean University
Mentor Beth Brenner, a former high school guidance counselor married to a school superintendent (we don't mess around choosing top mentors!) with Nikki Carusoa graduate of Mamaroneck HS who is going to Binghamton University. Nikki is "immensely proud" of her Italian, Mexican, and Navajo Indian background. She dreams of writing about the obstacles she's overcome to inspire others to keep fighting for what they believe in. We believe in Nikki!
Mentor Wendy Wolf with Kesang Lama and her mom. Kesang,who came here from Nepal a few years ago, was a member of the cheer squad at Fox Lane HS - a perfect fit for her warm smile, positive attitude, and optimism. Kesang is very excited to attend U Conn this fall. This is Wendy's second year as a CBS mentor - last year she worked with Karol Toral, now a successful Mercy College sophomore. Mentoring works!



Crystal Reyes, from Mt. Vernon HS, will attend Denison University this fall. She is an "A" student who found time during senior year of high school to intern at Mastercard through Her Honor Mentoring program, to tutor elementary school kids, start her own volunteering club and participate in numerous other clubs and activities. Her lucky mentor is me, Amy Peck, Founder & Director of Campus Bound Scholars.
