Chicago high school senior, Arianna Alexander of Kentwood Academy deserves some recognition.
This young woman is the valedictorian of her class with a 5.1 (out of 4.0) GPA (yes…feel bad about yourselves) and has just accepted her offer to attend the prestigious Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, turning down 25 other schools in the process.
After learning that another Kentwood alum had earned over $1 million in college scholarships, Arianna’s father encouraged her to try and do the same by applying to any relevant scholarships and doing her best to excel at her academics.
It has clearly paid off as she will be attending an Ivy League college FO’ FREE.
Congratulations Arianna! If you should need help spending those extra scholarship dollars, I can send over my Sallie Mae info expeditiously if not sooner.
