I ventured to West Garfield Park—way outside of my comfort zone—to give a college admissions presentation to Legal Prep’s first class of rising seniors. I was greeted with unbridled enthusiasm. Despite some unimaginable challenges, these students have grit—a determination to succeed in life—and Legal Prep gives them hope—I was immediately hooked.
I knew from my experience as college admissions counselor and working with hundreds of students, regardless of where these students come from, they have a bright future. Legal Prep envisions its students becoming their neighborhoods’ leaders who will return to improve life for future generations and make Chicago the type of community we all want to live in!
So here I am serving on the Board of Directors with one goal: to help our students succeed in college and life beyond. But, I need your support today.
Please say YOU WILL help realize Legal Prep’s transformative vision and EXPAND its positive influence! Please say YOU WILL impact our students, school, neighborhood, and city.
What will your gift mean for Legal Prep students? Everything.
ANY donation is GREATLY appreciated and will help achieve my personal goal of raising $5,000.
Please say YOU WILL. You’ll be changing lives.
Legal Prep—Chicago’s first legal-themed high school—weaves legal and civic knowledge into a rigorous college prep education focusing on excellent communication skills, critical thinking, and advocacy. Its culture of high expectations, compassion, self-motivation, and reflection cultivates students who will be prepared to succeed at college and beyond by using their education to grow professionally, advocate for disadvantaged communities, and positively impact our society!
The Project To best serve our current students and expand the number of students who can benefit from Legal Prep’s incredible education, we need to make immediate major improvements to our 100-year old building, enabling us to use the top two floors (presently uninhabitable) for more classrooms and counseling space! With your help Legal Prep will enrich even more students with a life-changing education.
