The Assisi Scholar Program changed my life in more ways than one. Not only did it further my education far beyond anything I ever expected, but it also brought some of my closest friends and fondest memories in high school.
What makes the Assisi Scholar Program so unique is that it shapes students not only in the classroom, but in life experiences as well. This was evident, especially for me, when the Assisi Scholars went on field trips, completed our Capstone presentations, and of course our journey to Rome and Assisi our Senior year.
The people I have met and the things I have learned would not be possible without this program. Still today, as a sophomore in college, I make connections from my classes now to what I learned as an Assisi Scholar. Knowing that this program prepared me with the skills and lessons I need to grow not only as a student, but as a person, will always make me grateful for the Assisi Scholars.
