Infinite Scholars and Ypsilanti Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc.
In the wake of several recent studies showing that college affordability is at risk for students, the Ypsilanti Chapter of Jack & Jill of America, Inc., partnered with the Infinite Scholars organization and Canton High School to sponsor a scholarship fair to make a positive difference in the lives of local youth. The four-hour event took place at Canton High School in Canton, Michigan on October 10, 2018, and more than 40 colleges and universities were in attendance. The Scholarship Fair allowed students to learn about scholarship opportunities and other funding options directly from college admissions officers. For high school seniors, the fair also provided students an opportunity to apply to college and receive on the spot college admissions and scholarship awards. College seniors were encouraged to bring their ACT/SAT scores, high school transcript, letter of recommendation and a college essay on Why They Wanted to Attend College so that they could apply to any of the colleges in attendance as well. Many colleges waived the college application fees and many awarded on the spot scholarships. More than 500 students attended and more than $9 million in scholarships were awarded to high school seniors.
Jack and Jill Day 2018
In honor of Carole Robertson, children were given the opportunity to learn about Carole Robertson from a teen reading her biography. Afterwards children were given the opportunity to reflect and discuss their goals and what they believe in, and the importance of believing and pursuing their goals in honor of Carole Robertson.
Ypsilanti Families gathered at Revel and Roll bowling alley for fun, food, fellowship and reflection. Families and children competed in bowling, children played arcade games. After fun and play, we gathered in a dining area and discussed Carole Robertson with food and cupcakes in honor of Carole Robertson. Teens used this opportunity to collect school supplies for neighboring Ypsilanti Schools. It was a wonderful time and a great start to our 2018-2019 Program year for the Ypsilanti Chapter!
