BW to be Honored as Minds Matter "Partner of the Year"

On November 7, BW is being recognized as the Minds Matter "Partner of the Year" for the continuous support the university has provided to the program. The Minds Matter organization assists promising high school students from low-income backgrounds with things like ACT preparation and college admission counseling in order to put them on the path to a successful college career. Minds Matter says 100% of the program's students have been accepted by four-year colleges.

The national organization's Cleveland chapter was launched in 2008, with the help of several BW alumni. Michael Lagoni ‘06, along with Kristen San Marco ’06 and Meghan Pethtel ’07 all worked to bring the chapter together in it's beginning stages.

BW maintains a strong link with the chapter today through it's alumni founders, faculty board members and volunteers. The organization is also proud to partner with BW on a two-week summer enrichment program starting with the 2015-2016 year.

BW will be recognized at the Third Annual Minds Matter Gala on November 7, with tickets available online. There will also be a silent auction benefiting the non-profit organization's Cleveland chapter.
