PC Scholars Graduation & Scholarship Reception set for July 10 at Tri-C Metro

Each fall, the Presidents’ Council Foundation works with high school guidance counselors in the Cleveland area to select a group of sophomores with GPAs in the 2.5 – 3.0 range, and who have both a strong desire for achievement and a career interest in business, construction, entrepreneurship, financial services, healthcare, law or manufacturing and a strong desire for achievement.

The students meet twice a month for three hours on Saturdays throughout the school year and into the summer for three years.

This year’s graduating crop of PC scholars will be saluted on July 10 at the Cuyahoga Community College’s Metro Campus for their academic and career preparation, and their leadership and life skills development. The program begins at 5:30PM and the public is invited.
