Blog: Watsonville Ivy League Project

Watsonville Ivy League Project needs donations/sponsors.

I've been selected to represent Watsonville on a trip to the  Ivy League University tour for October 2012. I would really care to attend an Ivy League University after graduating from Watsonville High School. I'm one of ten students chosen to visit these prostegious  universities on the East Coast. We were selected from a large field of capable applicants, and we were chosen based on our GPA and on our extra curricular activities.

We are continually at work in our school and community projects, and have written very knowledgable essays. We can encourage you that the students and myself have a very high plausability of being admitted into these amazing universities, maybe even be given a complete payed for education, as we are the first in our family to stive for a higher education.

We will be meeting with admission and financial aid offers from the following colleges: Harvard, MIT, Boston University, Wellesly, Brown, Yale, Colombia and Princeton. We will be taking our sleeping bags to stay in the dorms with students at Harvard, Boston University and Yale University. We will visit eight colleges in six states in seven days. We leave late October and will return within a seven day span.

To fully fund each student for this tour the cost is $1,800. Any donation is very welcome. If you would like to make a tax deductible contribution, to help me raise the money, you may make the check out to:

, 500 Harkins Slough Road, Watsonville, CA 95076.

Thank you for any help you may lend in this endeavor.

Well Andre, if you were a WHS "Scholar Cat" a couple of years ago, perhaps you remember my casual piano recital for several hundred of you (on the five foot "other piano" in the Mello center). The musicians of Bay Concert Arts could easily raise all the money that you young scholars require in a continuing series of concerts on the Mello Center's much better nine foot Steinway Model 'D'. We could get started this summer, raise a pile of money by October and then continue on into the future. Recent top graduates of WHS have real "pull" in Watsonville right now. So, get busy and make it happen. E-mail me at: BCAweb@BayArea.Net Sincerely, William Kenville Bay Concert Arts http://bcaweb.bayarea.net
