Mentors and Mentees Meetup to Grill and Chill

Our mentorship committee hosted a barbecue at the home of volunteer Judy Payne last month for new scholars and their mentors to meet and get to know each other. This was a special opportunity to bring them together before the students start their first year of college. Going forward, the mentees will meet with their mentors at least once a month to share their questions, challenges, ideas and more. The BBQ was a big success and we hear a group of scholars and mentors are even planning a salsa evening together!
