Watching New Futures grow and mature has been one of the most satisfying experiences of my life. I derive considerable pride from the fact that New Futures has provided assistance of $3 million to nearly 350 very low-income students, of whom the vast majority are succeeding in their educational and career objectives.
But, more than statistics is inspiration I feel in meeting our scholars and sharing their pride in overcoming enormous personal and social obstacles to make productive and satisfying lives for themselves. I am exhilarated by the growth in support for this program and the way it is bringing together all parts of our community. We have found a formula that works for all of us.
Please join in this successful endeavor to create better lives for these committed young people who have few sources of assistance other than New Futures.
