Congratulations Class of 2020, and to our first graduating Bright Angel Scholar, Amber!

Meet Amber.

Amber is a very special part of the most recent graduating class from Texas State University. She's special to us for a number of reasons, one being that she is our first Bright Angel Scholar to graduate with her bachelor's degree! Despite graduating during these uncertain times, and not being able to walk the stage Amber is graduating with honors, secured a job in Houston, and is excited to start the next chapter of her life! To make this even more special, the funder of Amber’s scholarship, CareerPlug, is the founding corporate partner of the Bright Angel Scholars Program, and has provided Amber with an incredible mentor from their team over the last three years. 
 

“From the first time I met Amber, I could feel determination and grit exuding from her.  She's an incredibly resilient human who owned this process and really took this opportunity and scholarship seriously.  She deserves the success she's earned from her own very hard work.  Amber is a shining example of how having some extra support with resources for schoolwork was helpful as she worked to pave her way to an entirely new world of opportunity.  It's exciting to see Foster Angels' vision of helping former foster youth graduate from college become a reality. We at CareerPlug are grateful for the opportunity to support Amber. We are so happy for her and wish her the best in the next chapter of her life. Congratulations, Amber!“
