Future scholars

    Today at Drexel University’s Mandell Theater, 300 public high school students will see what it takes to make it through college. Philadelphia Futures’ Sponsor-A-Scholar program “We the people – free to succeed!” will unite low-income high schoolers with college students. U.S. Attorney David Memeger will lead a town hall to help prepare the high school students for the demands of college.
