Four HISD EMERGE seniors selected as Torch Scholar Finalists

Posted on

Four of our EMERGE Seniors were selected as Torch Scholar finalists and were flown to Northeastern University in early March for an interview, along with three EMERGE staff members and one EMERGE liaison, Ms. Dew, who is the College Access Coordinator at Westbury High School. The four selected students represented Westbury High School, Yates High School, Madison High School, and Furr High School. If students are selected as Torch Scholars, they will receive a full scholarship to attend Northeastern University. Two EMERGE Scholars from the Class of 2016 are currently Torch Scholars and are doing very well at Northeastern.
