Evergreen and the Black Student Fund

Black Student FundEvergreen recently became a member of the Black Student Fund (BSF).  I am thrilled to be part of this organization that has helped so many DC area students and their families have access to quality education.  Evergreen has a long history of leadership in diversity issues in independent schools.  We have been recognized as the most racially and culturally diversity member of the Assiation of Independent Maryland Schools (AIMS)

As the BSF website says:

“Since 1964, the Black Student Fund has provided financial assistance and support services to Washington, DC metropolitan area African-American students, grades pre-kindergarten to 12, and their families. BSF-assisted students stay in school, graduate high school with distinction and enter college. 70% of these students are from one-parent households. Many are the first generation to progress to higher education.

Established to racially desegregate the independent schools of the National Capital area, the Fund serves as an advocate for all black children and strives to assure that black students and their families have equal access to every educational opportunity.”

Evergreen will be participating in the BSF Independent School Fair on Sunday September 8 from 2 pm to 5pm at the Washington Convention Center.  I hope to see you there.
