Thank you so much for supporting EMERGE’s Annual Build The Village Luncheon. Your thoughtful support and participation not only means a great deal to us but more importantly to the thousands of students who directly benefit from EMERGE's programs and services. Thanks to you and all who participated, we raised nearly $35,000 at the Luncheon, bringing our total to nearly $560,000!

We were honored to have Wellesley College's President, Dr. Paula Johnson, as our keynote speaker and EMERGE student Ashley Jauregui, who attends Stratford High School, share her personal story of perseverance and hope. The program was truly a memorable celebration from start to finish with many heartfelt moments in between. 
 
Thank you again for your incredible generosity. It is because of the tremendous support of our village that EMERGE can continue to increase the number of high-performing students from Houston’s most underserved communities who apply to, attend, and graduate from the nation’s most selective institutions.
