Ms Diallo graduates in the top 5% of her class and has demonstrated all of the qualities required to become a Raymond “Hap” Harrison Scholarship winner.
Building Foundations and Dreams will provide the Raymond “Hap” Harrison Scholarship to seven hard-working college students in 2013. Because the scholarship renews every year each recipient that maintained a specific GPA, Mr.Bailey will once again award the annual scholarship to senior Alejandro Hincapie, junior Brittany Amoroso, sophomore Raquel Beckford and sophomore Breanne Springstead. The scholarship will also be endowed to high school seniors Aissatou Diallo, Keilon La Barrie and Jennifer Teets.
Aissatou Diallo is a member of the 2013 graduating class of Benjamin Banneker Academy. Ms. Diallo was a paid intern through the Futures and Options program which helps underserved youth explore careers and guides them to further education. Ms Diallo graduates in the top 5% of her class and plans to attend Hunter College in the fall.
