Those words were uttered by one of our seniors at Anacostia who will be starting at North Carolina A&T next month. He and several other of the MATHletes we have worked with for four years are off to an amazing voyage, much of which is chronicled in my blog. Starting this weekend, I get to help deliver MATHletes to Langston University in Oklahoma, Morehouse College, North Carolina A&T, and South Carolina State University. I can’t think of an activity that will give me more satisfaction.
“When I first came to Chavez, math was one of my top struggles. I wasn’t quite sure if I’d ever make it to the next grade level when it came to math. However, RISE-DC tutors helped me to understand math on a broader level, and I will be graduating in June and attending my dream college.”—Brianne, a Chavez student who graduated in 2011
