College will be a little bit easier for some students in the metro Atlanta area, thanks to a $1,000 college scholarship and tablet from Aio Wireless.
Some 30 students from the Atlanta metro area were recently honored at a celebration at Fernbank as part of Aio’s “30-Days, 30-Dreams.”
Dacula High School students Andrea Arroyo and Louis Conde and Archer High School student Esther Velez Arce were among those honored.
The program partnered with local nonprofit organizations to create opportunities for future leaders in the communities it serves.
“’30 Days, 30 Dreams’ is about working together with organizations that make dreams a reality for our leaders of tomorrow,” said Norelie Garcia, Aio’s director of sponsorships and community engagement.
In Atlanta, Aio collaborated with three community-based organizations to identify the scholarship recipients: 100 Black Men of Atlanta (North and South metro councils); the Latin American Association; and Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta.
The students were honored Wednesday night at the Fernbank event and presented with the scholarships and tablets.
