It is so rewarding to see the evolution of Upward Scholars over the years. The past few years have been ones of rapid growth and development for the team, allowing the organization to provide more and deeper services and support to our students than ever before. This past year, however, while filled with many challenges and unknowns, has been instrumental in revealing our team's ability to stretch and pivot quickly and effectively. Our commitment to keeping our students in college and on track to meet their academic and career goals has never been more important. The Almanac community's generosity helps us continue this mission into the new year and for that we are so thankful. :)
