Congratulations to our very own Chris Sampson!
Chris is currently our Director of Elementary Site Programs and was just named a recipient of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America/University of Phoenix Scholarship!
Academic success is a key priority for Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and with partners like University of Phoenix, youth are receiving education opportunities to help them graduate from high school and prepare for college. However, this partnership is evening furthering their impact on education by offering Boys & Girls Club parents, alumni and staff- like Chris Sampson, to pursue their educational and career goals.
More than 250 Club affiliates applied for this scholarship and only thirty were chosen! The scholarship offers full-tuition for adults to complete an undergraduate or graduate degree.
We are proud of Chris as he begins his journey to earning his MBA while continuing the amazing work he does for our Clubs.
