GCPS Class of 2018: Six Gwinnett seniors named Posse Scholars

January 4, 2018

     Six Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) seniors have been awarded four-year, full-tuition scholarships through a program sponsored by the Posse Foundation. Founded in 1989, Posse identifies public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential who may be overlooked by traditional college selection processes. Posse extends to these students the opportunity to pursue personal and academic excellence by placing them in supportive, multicultural teams of 10 students called Posses. Posse partner colleges and universities award Posse Scholars four-year, full-tuition leadership scholarships. Those scholars go on to graduate at a rate of 90% and make a visible difference on campus and throughout their professional careers. The 2018 Posse Scholars from GCPS are:
