Students Taking Renewed Interest in the Value of Education (STRIVE) is a mentorship program created to motivate high school seniors who wish to improve their present educational status and life prospects. The program was developed on the premise that students who are academically ranked in the lower half of their class have the same natural abilities and gifts as those who are in the upper half. The difference is often motivation, work habits, self esteem, attendance, and performance in the classroom. STRIVE challenges these students to improve their work, gain self-confidence and discover the satisfaction of achievement.
Six scholarships are awarded at the STRIVE Celebration Banquet in June.
