Send Quon to Harvard

As you guys know, Mar’Quon was selected to attend Harvard University’s summer program. This program will run from June-August. Although he earned a scholarship to cover some expenses, he will need additional funds to cover tuition fees, housing, plane tickets, and day to day living expenses.

As his parents, we can honestly say that Quon has worked hard his whole life to get here. He is currently a sophomore at Thomas Dale high school, where he maintains a 4.2 gpa.

This program allows high school students from all across the world to partake in a 7 week-session summer program to receive college credits. He will be alongside other scholars, he will be able to do the things that he loves to do most: read (Harvard has over 73 libraries), he will have a greater advantage in the admissions process, and he will be able to turn a dream into a reality. All with your help!

A few words from Mar’Quon:

Hello, this is Mar'Quon and I have recently been accepted to the Harvard Secondary School Summer Program for the class of 2018. It is a dream of mine to go to Harvard - only 4.6 of applicants actually get accepted. I have been putting in an inestimable amount of work to turn that dream into a reality. However, there are many additional expenses. I am asking anyone, can you please make a donation to send me to Harvard? Would you guys please assist me in turning a dream to a reality? I am truly thankful for all of you; every donation counts. Bless up!
