    Fort Bend County Graduates Create Foundation and Award First Scholarship

    Fort Bend Education Foundation recently announced Paola Flores, a senior at Bush High School, won the 2021 Vision Inspired (VI) Foundation Scholarship, which is awarded to a graduating senior from Fort Bend ISD’s AVID program each year. The scholarship is part of the VI Scholars program, developed in partnership with the Fort Bend Education Foundation, with the goal of providing impactful scholarships and mentorship for high-potential students. Throughout their time in college, VI Scholars will engage regularly with VI Foundation’s leadership team in proactive and intentional conversations about their career goals and pathways. Members of the VI Foundation mentor students by sharing stories about their failures and successes and guiding them through the processes of thinking through difficult decisions. “Our team has served in a variety of industries ranging from Fortune 100 tech companies, engineering and financial services sectors, and leading consulting firms,” said Matthew Wong, board member of Vision Inspired Foundation. “It’s a two-way street. Importantly, the student joins VI not only as a mentee, but a fellow colleague. We expect to learn from them as much as they will learn from us.” In addition, all students in the program receive up to $16,000 over four years. This amount, combined with FAFSA estimates, means a student’s tuition at many institutions could be fully covered.

    Why Should You Attend Your Class Reunion?

    It’s been the subject of countless TV sitcoms: an upcoming class reunion and all of the negatives that come with it. Characters are either scrambling to embarrass an old rival, doing their best to woo an old crush or looking for reasons to skip the reunion entirely.  We laugh at the episode’s antics and situations—and scoff at the ending when it all turns out okay. But are class reunions really so bad?  In reality, reunions are great opportunities to reconnect with people from your past. You’ll get to see old friends and catch up on what everyone has been doing over the past few years. All told, there are far more reasons to attend your class reunion than there are to skip it, and with the summer reunion season just about to begin, we thought we’d focus on why you should make it out to yours if you’re able! Overcoming ‘reunion anxiety’ The most common reason alumni cite for skipping their class reunion is anxiety. They get wrapped up in the details of what they think a reunion is all about, instead of what it is. It’s important to remember that reunions are social events—not talent shows. You are there to see people you haven’t been able to keep in touch with, not compare salaries, cars, house sizes or job titles. Quell your anxiety by remembering the good things about the get-together. You’ll get to see old friends, share new laughs, expand your personal and professional networks and have a good time while you’re there.  Life after a reunion One of the most important things to remember is that a class reunion is an invitation to future possibilities. You might end up sharing coffee a week later with a friend you haven’t seen in years. Or, you might find yourself with a job prospect after networking with someone in the same field as yours.  You could even find yourself sitting across from your high school crush over dinner the next day! The reunion opens the door for ongoing interactions—even if it’s just friending someone on Facebook or adding a classmate to your LinkedIn network. You’ve got a story to tell One of the very best things about attending your reunion is listening to all of the stories. These are people you knew years ago, and who have had their own life experiences in the many years since you’ve seen them last. For once, when someone says, “Hey, what’s new?” you’ll have endless stories to share with them! And, you’re bound to hear some pretty neat things in return. If you’ve been curious about what happened to that classmate from social studies or wonder what careers other graduates have gone into, attend your next class reunion. When that invitation comes in the mail or hits your inbox, take a moment to reflect on all of the positive reasons to RSVP “yes.” You won’t regret it!
