“In today's financial climate, we need to ensure students from every demographic have scholarship opportunities for higher education.”

From 2013 to present, I served on the board of the organization and designed a digital portfolio recruitment system that connects student portfolios with colleges and universities.

The system was used to provide exhibition and post-secondary education opportunities for public, charter, and private high school students in the state of Illinois.  As a result, over $120 mil. in scholarship opportunities have been awarded.
