PressBox is combining forces with Sports Boosters (5013-C charitable organization), The Zolet Lenet Group at Morgan Stanley, Shoe City and 92Q to improve the grades, spirits and athletic performance of high school kids who may otherwise be left behind. The program mission statement is: "Increase high school competency and attendance through positive reinforcement of the message that hard work and better grades open doors and create the opportunity for a better future."
Sophomores in designated schools who raise their overall average one full letter grade or maintain an A average from the second semester of their freshman year to the first semester of the 2013-14 school year will receive a $75 gift card from Shoe City for shoes or other apparel. Last year, we awarded more than 175 gift cards to students who made the grade!
This year's participating schools include:
Anne Arundel County: Annapolis High School
Baltimore City: TBD
Baltimore County: Woodlawn High School
Carroll County: Winters Mill High School
Howard County: Homewood Center
Harford County: Joppatowne High School
