Every student deserves a chance to reach his/her full potential and achieve social and economic mobility. “Grit” - the ability and tenacity to overcome obstacles on the way to achieving goals, is a crucial trait needed to perform at one’s best. Some students possess both grit and a desire to do something great, but need help with how to actualize their dreams. Other students may need help unlocking and finding their inner grit.
The Legacy Project helps both types of students by providing them with a community of coaches and hands-on learning to build a roadmap toward their educational and career goals.
Key elements of The Legacy Project include, but are not limited to:
- Tuition toward post-secondary education and training, up to $20,000 over the full term of the program
- Individualized coaching
- Help with goal-setting and achievement
- Exposure to community service and career experiences
- Career mentors
- College campus experience
Support for The Legacy Project is provided by The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation and The Hagedorn Legacy Foundation. Program partners include The Ohio State University, Global Financial Partners and Mayerson Academy.
Current 8th grade students at Rosemore Middle School who will be attending Whitehall Yearling High School in the Fall of 2021 are eligible to apply. The application will be available beginning Monday, March 22.
