It is with great pleasure to congratulate three Friendship Collegiate Academy seniors, who were selected as recipients of significant scholarships offered by Hanover College
Takima Jonson has been offered a full tuition room and board Benjamin Templeton scholarship worth approximately $140,000 over 4 years to Hanover College. Cora Smallwood and Tynisha Little have been offered the Jordan scholarship, which is valued at approximately $85,000 over 5 years .
In addition to the financial support, Benjamin Templeton and Jordon Scholars receive a mentor who is a member of the Hanover College administrative staff. Mentors volunteer their time and higher education experience to serve as both an academic and personal support system. Scholars meet their mentor weekly to stay abreast of all upcoming academic responsibilities and campus involvement and leadership opportunities. 98% of Benjamin Templeton scholars graduate within 4 years.
The Director of the Templeton Scholars Program, Monica Greene, flew into D.C. to surprise and present the scholarship awards to our three students.
