Crosby Scholars Community Partnership
Speaker: Mona Wooten, President and CEO
The Crosby Scholars Community Partnership helps students in public middle and high schools prepare themselves academically, personally, and financially for college admission. The Crosby Scholar students must meet required academic standards, make a commitment to remain drug-free, attend Crosby Scholars Academy, and participate in volunteer community service, leadership development training, career exploration, and financial aid workshops designed to help both the students and their parents.
For those students who meet financial and academic criteria, the program provides “last dollar” scholarships to bridge the gap between the cost of college attendance and other forms of financial assistance. Since its inception, the program has awarded $5.1 million dollars in last dollar grant assistance and has leveraged an additional $50 million in financial assistance.
The program has a 24 year history in partnership with the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, the Winston-Salem Foundation, the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust. It is also an affiliate of Goodwill of Northwest North Carolina, so Crosby Scholar programs are now available in Rowan County and Iredell County. As a United Way Partner Agency, it collaborates with youth serving agencies throughout the community.
Last year, 857 seniors were guided through the college admissions process and into higher education institutions. Enrollment in grades 6-12 topped 9,700 students in the 2016-2017 school year. Annual recruitment occurs in early fall, when new students in grades 6-10 are invited to join the program. All Forsyth County students attending public school in grades 6-10 are automatically accepted.
Mona Wooten Lovett joined Crosby Scholars as the Executive Director in September 1996 and currently serves as the President and CEO — celebrating 20 years with the organization.
