Let’s Get Ready Site Directors Luisanna Villa and Imani Ford have been commended for their work by the Kids’ Club of Tarrytown & Sleepy Hollow. Let’s Get Ready has been working in the area with the Kids’ Club’s support since 2013. A post on the Kids’ Club’s website calls Villa and Ford “rising stars,” explaining:

Luisanna Villa (rising Senior, Fordham University) and Imani Ford (rising Senior, Lafayette College), are both solidly on the road to success. But the path has not been easy. Both were highly motivated, hard working high school students when their paths crossed as they took part in the Let’s Get Ready college coaching and SAT tutoring program five years ago. Let’s Get Ready uses college students to coach underserved high school students for nine weeks over the summer, guiding them through the college admission process. Thanks to Let’s Get Ready, Luisanna and Imani were exposed to many options they would never have considered, and each landed a spot at their dream school.

A big salute and congratulations to the Site Directors, as well as the Kids’ Club of Tarrytown & Sleepy Hollow, for your outstanding work! Read the full post here.
