Success Stories

Each year Passion for Learning raises funds to provide full scholarships for selected middle school youth. We do this so that exceptional and striving students can extend their learning over the summer and continue to develop their talents in digital technology and the language arts.

P4L Alums in college give back: Summer 2017

Marian Conteh, Ebonie Gadson and Isabella Louis are P4L alums who are now in college. Over the summer they worked alongside our summer camp instructors and coached middle schoolers at technology and Go2College camps. They were an inspiration!
 
Marian and Ebonie attend Montgomery College and will transfer to four year universities in the Spring of 2018.  Isabella is a senior at Goucher College.

 

Youth Media Festival Finalists and Winners: Spring 2017

A team of our GRRL Tech students from Loiederman Middle School won first prize for their “Hate Speech” film at the 2017 Montgomery County Youth Media Festival held at the AFI Silver Theatre.

Our Eastern Middle School Dig.Lit students had three of their films selected as finalists at the Festival.

Out of 200 films submitted to the Festival from all over the County, four of the finalists/winners were P4L student teams.

 

Top Teen: 2016-17

In early 2016, P4L alumna and Montgomery Blair High School senior class president, Yuchabel Sanon, participated in for the First Lady's Mentoring Program. Each Wednesday for several months, she engaged in activities with her official mentor, the First Lady's official photographer. Yuchabel went to the White House Christmas party, the Easter Egg Roll and to Camp David. She's learned how to unleash her enormous potential!

In the Spring of 2017, Yuchabel was honored and awarded with a $10,000 college scholarship at the Children’s Defense Fund “Beat the Odds” gala in Washington, DC.  

Also in the Spring of 2017, Yuchabel was selected and featured in Bethesda Magazine as one of Montgomery County’s Top Teens! 

Yuchabel is now a freshman at Towson University. This young woman is going places!
