Vous ne croirez pas à QUEL point la persistance est rentable !

Shariah Edwards vient d’obtenir son diplôme de la Power Center Academy High School, une école à charte de Memphis, au Tennessee. Maintenant, elle est confrontée à une tâche que beaucoup de jeunes diplômés du secondaire doivent faire: choisir le collège de ceux à qui elle a été acceptée.

Mais la situation de Shariah est unique, à plus d’un titre. Elle a été acceptée dans 149 collèges à travers le pays, selon un conseiller de l’école. On lui a également offert plus de 7,6 millions de dollars en bourses d’études.

“Elle nous a complètement emporté”, a déclaré Tamara Woods-Wormley, le conseiller du collège à l’école secondaire Power Center Academy. «Je lui ai donné une liste de collèges de A à Z qui n’ont pas de frais d’inscription … tous les jours, elle venait au bureau et demandait d’envoyer des transcriptions ici ou là.

Shariah, un étudiant droit, n’a jamais attendu ce résultat. Elle voulait simplement maximiser ses options pour l’enseignement supérieur et soulager le fardeau financier de sa famille. Son but était de devenir un millionnaire érudit, un titre que son école utilise pour encourager les étudiants à demander des bourses d’études – soit par le biais de programmes de mérite ou en privé – pour les aider à aller à l’université. Si elles gagnent au moins 1 million de dollars en offres, ils sont présentés avec un contrôle symbolique à l’obtention du diplôme.

Pour garder une trace des admissions et des offres de bourses d’études, toutes les lettres doivent être fournies à Woods-Wormley. Ils sont ensuite vérifiés et enregistrés dans un tableur, qui a été examiné par CBS News. Shariah était le plus haut revenu des 145 étudiants dans la classe de 2017, qui, selon le Power Center Academy, a reçu plus de 30 millions de dollars en bourses d’études.

Selon Woods-Wormley, toutes les écoles de la charia ont été acceptées sont des institutions de quatre ans. Les écoles sont littéralement partout dans le pays, de l’Université Regis au Colorado, à l’Université Tuskegee en Alabama, à Johnson et au Pays de Galles à Rhode Island.

“Je ne voulais pas me limiter, alors j’ai fait des recherches et appliqué à celles qui m’intéressaient”, a déclaré Shariah à CBS News. “J’étais étonné, parce que je ne pensais pas que j’aurais autant d’acceptations.”

Shariah dit qu’elle se concentre encore là où elle veut aller à l’université, mais Tennessee State University est l’un de ses meilleurs choix.
