Join us in celebrating our EMERGE College Graduates! 



The EMERGE College Success Team provides over 1,100 College Scholars access to career development opportunities and unique internship experiences.


For the first time ever, we have scholars graduating from two partner districts - Houston ISD and Spring Branch ISD. We are so proud of our graduates and are excited about their future plans. 


Lavonne Hoang
Carnegie Vanguard HS '17
Duke University '21

"I am most proud of my Rubenstein scholarship, a full-merit scholarship for first-generation college students, that allowed me to attend Duke University. I am also proud of my senior thesis that reflected four years of work in both Statistical Science and Computer Science. I was so happy to showcase this to a committee of faculty as well as my friends and family!" 


William Acheampong
Bellaire HS '17
The University of Texas at Austin '21

"During my time in college, I am most proud of the five incredible internships I had. The experience, relationships, and skills that I gained as an EMERGE intern at Arnold Ventures enabled me to land incredibly formative and life-changing roles with Vinson & Elkins, Accenture, Boston Consulting Group, and the Council on Foreign Relations!"


Kabita Adhari
Long Academy '17
Denison University '21 

"I am most proud that I am not only the first college graduate in my family but will also be the first to obtain a doctorate in my extended family as I pursue further education."
