Lydia Awarded Gates Millenium!

My granddaughter, Lydia, is the First CRLS Senior Awarded Gates Millenium Scholarship- I am soooo proud!

This spring, Lydia Curliss became the first CRLS senior to earn a prestigious Gates Millennium Scholarship and is one of just two high school seniors in all of Massachusetts this year to receive this honor.

The Gates Millennium Scholars Program (GMS), established in 1999, was initially funded by a $1 billion grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The goal of GMS is to promote academic excellence and to provide an opportunity for outstanding minority students with significant financial need to reach their highest potential.

Tomorrow she leaves for Oberlin!
