CT Strategies Supports San Miguel School’s 8th Annual Scholarship Benefit Gala

On Saturday, February 8, the CT Strategies team attended San Miguel School’s 8th Annual Scholarship Benefit Gala in Bethesda, MD. San Miguel School is a boys’ middle school in Washington DC that aims to “transform lives and break the cycle of poverty through education.” About 90 percent of students attending the school live at or below the federal poverty level, and many of them are the first in their family to fluently speak English. 100 percent of San Miguel students go on to graduate from high school and nearly 80 percent go to college. 

At the gala, we met aspiring doctors, engineers, and teachers who shared some of their projects from the previous year. We heard about students’ research on Ancient Egypt, job shadowing experiences, and projects in robotics club. 

CT Strategies has enjoyed supporting the San Miguel School in recent years and we look forward to continuing our engagement with the school in the future.
