Congratulations to Jasmin Smith (2nd from right) who joined College Bound AZ in 7th grade with the dream of being the first in her family to go to college. Our Jr High Academy teaches the 6-Step Critical Path to College, a program developed by College Bound AZ. Jasmin is the second of our 2019 RISE Scholars cohort to share the distinction of being an Obama Scholar at Arizona State University. She started her studies in Engineering in 2019. Her exceptional academic performance and her Pell-eligibility earned her four years of paid tuition, books, fees, room and board valued at $100,000.
