Four DLA Students win College Promise Scholarship!!

Our College Promise winners left to right are:  Daveauntae Cotton, Monet Allen, Carston Hardwick and Amari Harris

Four eighth graders at Dayton Leadership Academies are among the 53 students in Montgomery County who have been awarded the College Promise Scholarship!
Monet Allen, Daveauntae Cotton, Carston Hardwick and Amari Harris received news this weekend that they had been selected. The College Promise Scholarship provides a mentor during high school and the opportunity to attend such schools as Wright State, Central State, University of Dayton, Miami University and others for little or no cost to scholarship families.
These four students join Jazzmyn Sumlin (DLA Class of 2014) as College Promise Scholarship recipients.
