First UB Prizes Awarded
Two graduating UB seniors, Donald Washington
and Patrica Danso, were individually awarded the UB Prize.
Each student received a $500.00 check towards their freshman
year college expenses. Natasha Telesford, one of the prize
donors, was on hand to present the awards. Other prize donors
include Tin Duc Le and Sean Rand. Upward Bound is grateful
for the generous contributions of these three individuals
to the prize fund.
Thai, UB Class of 1992
she graduated from UB twelve years ago, Ms. Thai returned
to recall her experiences in the program and the success that
she has achieved. The remarkable journey was eloquently captured
with her personal account of a journey that continues to be
rewarding. Her story is just one of the many impressive and
upstanding lives alumni of UB go on to achieve. In addition,
the alumni speaker also created the UB banner that hung in
the lobby of the BU Law auditorium. The red banner was expertly
sewn and adorned with T-shirt art work from past summers.
