CASE Grant Competition

This Year's Winner Is Kirnel Daniel '12

For the Strong Sistas Mentoring Program in partnership with Decatur High School
Faculty Adviser: Yvonne Newsome

Kirnel's project matches student mentors from Agnes Scott with female students at Decatur High School. The group will focus on girls who are at risk of dropping out of school, becoming teenage mothers, or succumbing to peer pressure to engage in illicit drug use or other deviant behaviors. 

The Agnes Scott mentors will empower and support high school students by conducting self-improvement workshops, team-building exercises, field trips, speaker engagements, journaling activities, academic tutoring, and by providing assistance with applications for college entrance and financial aid.
