We've already announced this on our front page, but in case you missed it: our biggest congratulations go to our phenomenal senior Zané Chase, who has won the prestigious Posse Scholarship!
Posse chapters are active throughout the country, but the New York City chapter is especially competitive, awarding scholarships to just ten seniors from the city's graduating class.
Posse award winners receive full scholarships to a school of their choosing, and Zané will be attending Lafayette College in Easton, PA. Her award is valued at more than $250,000 and will cover all of her educational expenses for the four years of her undergraduate degree.
Our school community is delighted for Zané: the Posse application process is grueling, with numerous group and individual interviews, essays, forms and meetings with college officials. Posse recipients are celebrated for their exceptional drive, academic abilities, magnetic personalities, and fierce commitment to improving the world, and Zané will certainly fit in among that company. We could not be prouder of her hard work.
