IP Names 2018 Scholarship Class
Impossible Possibilities (IP) awarded 10 scholarships to students who will represent the organization’s 2018 Scholarship Class.
Since 2009, IP has now awarded scholarships to 67 students totaling more than $120,000. IP received 140 scholarship applications from graduating high school seniors in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Nine students were selected to receive a $2,000 scholarship to attend college.
IP also extended its first international scholarship to a Kenyan student currently pursuing his studies at Mount Kenya University located in Thika, Kenya. Members of IP’s Advisory Board met Joseph when they visited Kenya in August 2017 to help build a new primary school as part of its “Past the Periphery” program.
“This is the most diverse class we’ve ever had and our largest since 2009,” IP co-founder Joshua Hernandez said. “These students represent a variety of races, ethnicities and nationalities, but the one thing they all share is a passion for education. We are very proud to have all of them represent our organization.”
