SAS Students Shine Again with Posse Miami

Miami, November 5, 2013 - SAS is delighted to announce that 10 SAS scholars have been selected for the 40 coveted scholarships offered through the Posse Foundation in Miami this year. Traditionally, SAS has led all Miami-Dade County high schools in the number of Posse Scholarship recipients. This is especially impressive in view of the relative small size of graduating seniors at SAS each year when compared with much larger high schools. This years SAS Posse students are Nicolas Berio-Lebeau, Christy Charnel, Troy Duffie, Enmanuel Espinales, Edgar Garcia, Stephanie Gonzalez, Kelly Perez, Cylena Stewart, Tiffany Vinci-Cannaya, and Vickie Victor.

About Posse:

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—Posses—of 10 students who all go to the same college together and meet on a regular basis during their years at that institution. Posse partner colleges and universities award Posse Scholars four-year, full-tuition leadership scholarships. This year Posse Miami is associated with top liberal arts schools such as Franklin and Marshall, Syracuse, Hamilton, and Mt. Holyoke.
