Euphrates International Investment Company and Partners for Youth Foundation, Inc. have teamed together to bring a wonderful opportunity to high school students through an essay writing contest.
We are so proud of all 44 students from Frederick Douglass High School who participated in our essay contest and give a special congratulations to the winners:
1st Place- Samuel Cornett (97%)-$250
2nd Place-Robert Vaughan (92.7%)-$150
3rd Place-Veronica Hutt (91.5%)-$100
We’d like to thank you, Mayor Linda Gorton and all the Council Members, for your continued support of our programs, Erran Persley, President of Euphrates International Investment Company, for your sponsorship of this contest and investing in youth, and to Frederick Douglass High School for creating a semester curriculum to help seniors apply this topic to the career pathways they are exploring. We appreciate your guidance you provided them and for your collaboration on this contest. We look forward to finalizing the selection of our next school soon.
We’d especially like to thank the 29 community volunteers who read and scored the essays! Without your participation, this opportunity would not hold true to our mission!
