First-Year Student, St. Olaf College
One of our board members, Ross Miglin, had this to say about our scholarship recipient:
“We chose Jesse Flores as a recipient for his outstanding academic standing, community service efforts, and commitment to promoting more diversity, equity, and inclusion in the community.
Jesse earned KIPP's magna cum laude distinction for the class of 2020, having the highest aptitude scores (ACT) out of all the applicants this academic cycle. He is also a current member of three academic honor societies as well as a Fundraising Committee Leader for KIPP’s Club Council. Jesse balances his schoolwork with his involvement as an Assistant Crew Leader at Urban Roots, a farm-based youth leadership organization, where he leads volunteers and youth interns in civic engagement including planting, harvesting, and processing produce for community lunches. Jesse models leadership through his commitment to his studies and his dedication to bettering his school and community.
Jesse’s long-term plans include becoming a leader in the field of biochemical engineering to discover solutions to address climate change"
Jesse will be attending St. Olaf College in Minnesota where he will be pursuing majors in Biology and Chemistry.
The Envisioning Greater Success Foundation is pleased to offer her a $2,000 award for his accomplishments.
