TRIO/SSS wants to thank the GRCC community for your sustained support of our Donuts and Apples fundraiser. Every year we have been able to cover the cost of attendance for a student to attend the Power of Education Foundation (PEF) School in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
Because of your amazing generosity and support of TRIO’s Donuts and Apples fundraiser held every fall during late October, Mickerlange Abraham’s educational expenses have been fully covered for the last three years!
Now, Mickerlange has completed her 9th grade year, passed all her national exams, and moved to attend high school. She sent a thank you message to all of us.
This is a photo of Mickerlange taken just two weeks ago by Jen Masternak, director of communications for the Power of Education Foundation on her recent visit to the school. Jen also extended her thanks to GRCC: “I would like to say a huge heartfelt thank you to everyone who supported the fall fundraiser. Mickerlange is a very determined young woman who continues to work hard to her goal of becoming a journalist.”
