College Ready! Program

Rise & Shine's College Ready Program supports students who are heading to college!  In addition to financial support, Rise & Shine provides essentials like academic planners, sheet sets & comforters, towels, alarm clocks, toiletries, desk lamps, storage containers, and mini fridges and microwaves for dorm rooms.  Congratulations to our 2019 recipients!  

In 2019, Yadira Gallegos Rojas started Panola College in Carthage, Texas.  She also joined us on our first Tour & Teach trip to Washington, D.C.

We are so proud of you Yadira!!

It's never too late to start college!  Aphara Hollis, mom to seven-year-old Jeremiah, is entering the Vocational Nursing Program at Panola College.

Congratulations Aphara!!
