“Thank you. To everyone. To everyone who I have met along every step of my journey, and to everyone who has given me so many opportunities to become a better student, and a better person in general, thank you. Thank you to everyone who has supported SLI because if it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t have been able to be part of such a wonderful program.

SLI will forever hold a special place in my heart, and I hope that in the future, I can have the opportunity to become a mentor as well. I wish I could find the words to express how grateful I am but the truth is that I can’t. However, to everyone who has been a part of SLI, I just wanted to let you know that all the effort, time, and sacrifice that you all have placed into this organization has not been in vain.

All that you have done for me as well as for my sister, we have not taken for granted. Thank you.”

Thank you for your gift to empower SLI scholars like Everth and their families by helping to create college opportunities, including through scholarships, computer awards, dual enrollment tuition support, mentorships, and programming.

With you as partner, “SLI recognizes and supports the outstanding efforts by student scholars who are often overlooked, under-supported, and under-resourced, and who have our gratitude and respect,” said SLI program director Carlos Alemán, Ph.D.

I invite you to learn more about SLI scholars like Everth and Elly (pictured below) and to read their testimonials. These young people and their voices are well worth our shared investment of resources, time, and commitment.
