Tutor Receives Wingate Presidential Scholarship
Kayla Rugg of Cumberland County Schools, North Carolina, has been accepted to Wingate University with a Presidential Scholarship of $50,000. Kayla was a tutor in IDRA’s Coca-Cola Valued Youth Program last year. She received third prize in our high school tutor essay contest. “I have discovered that when my tutees see that I am doing well in school, they also strive to do well,” wrote Kayla Rugg. “This has been an extremely good motivator for me. I never dreamed that I could possibly make a 3.8 grade point average. Thanks to those young children, I am a much better person than ever. It makes me feel as though anything is possible.” Her full essay is online at: http://www.idra.org/coca-cola-valued-youth-program/.
