Shaikeria Stallings

Sometimes, all that is needed to get a student headed in the right direction is the opportunity of hope. Shaikeria Stallings shares what FIFTEEN did for her in this realm: "Before becoming a student in the FIFTEEN program, I did not think that college was an option for me. I believed that I would graduate from high school and go into the workforce and that would be as far as I would make it. During the time I was in the FIFTEEN leadership program, I gained the encouragement and confidence I needed to move forward and pursue a college degree from one of the most prestigious liberal arts colleges in the country. FIFTEEN was instrumental in nominating me to receive a full four-year scholarship from a national scholarship organization."
