|Last year's seniors at closing|
The selected topic for this year's student essays was "self image," an appropriate subject given the challenges young people face when heading out into the real world. What do you want people to think about you and what kind of impression do you want to leave with potential college admissions administrators, professors and employers? That was on everyone's minds at Bowie State yesterday and the prevailing opinion was that the students did an excellent job, making their families and Gamma Pi chapter proud. Many families were in attendance to support their young people.
The PR Committee did not capture any video of students making their presentations since they were being graded competitively. Without the ability to videotape each and every one, it could have represented an advantage/disadvantage for any of them. But following the presentations, Gamma Pi talked to a handful of seniors (on video) who will be leaving the program upon graduation in a few weeks. They had some interesting comments about how Project ENRICH has prepared them well for college and the world beyond. The unedited video is below.
As you will hear Project ENRICH is definitely having the intended effect on students' lives and preparation for the future. (see links at end of post to share on Facebook or Twitter)
