Hi everyone!! Kerin Gorrasi was nominated by Weston High School to participate in two different Summer Educational programs:
The first is a conference hosted by the National Student Leadership Conference for Engineering.
The Engineering program has the option of selecting one of the educational institutions at which the nine-day program is being held, including , Yale University, Northwestern University, American University, UC Berkeley, Georgia Tech, and Rice University.
You can check it out at www.nslcleaders.org
The second conference is hosted by The National Youth Leadership Forum on -
* Diplomacy, Intelligence, and Defense
The National Security program is a six-day experience being held in Washington DC, at George Mason University.
You can check it out at www.NYLFns.com
Although he hasn't yet decided which opportunity he will select we know we will need to raise money to make this happen for him.
If you've never heard me brag about my son, you should know:
He is a bright, caring and conscientious young man.
He has been on the Principal's Honor Roll each of the six quarters he has been at Weston High School.
He is a proud member of Weston Fire Department Fire Explorer Program.
He has loved to play 3 seasons of baseball for the last nine years.
He aims high in all areas of his life.
Being a single parent for the majority of his life, I've always tried to provide him with all things he needs. But there are some things I can't do alone. This is why I'm reaching out to my "village."
Kerin is trying to raise about $3,750. This cost includes the cost of either program, which is about $3,000. The additional $750 is for transportation costs and some meals the participants have (on their own).
Payments to ensure Kerin has a spot for either program begin on MARCH 1st, which is just weeks away.
Please consider helping me get Kerin to Yale (or the CIA).
