Gragg receives SOS scholarship

YouthPartners recently awarded the 2014 Students with Opportunities to Soar Scholarship to Ashley Gragg, a graduate of Pine Bluff High School.

Gragg, valedictorian of the 2014 PBHS graduating class, will attend Xavier University at New Orleans in the fall.

YouthPartners manages SOS, a teen-service learning program that matches mentors with 10th-12th grade students to learn marketable skills.

Scholarship recipients were required to complete all SOS requirements and submit essays about their volunteer experience.

Participants with 100 hours or more volunteer hours along with other requirements received the President’s Volunteer Service Award, a national honor.
