Four Seniors Selected as POSSE Scholars

WOW! Congratulations to the FOUR CVHS seniors selected by The Posse Foundation to receive a leadership-based, four-year, full-tuition scholarship.


Shir Carasso will attend Bryn Mawr College majoring in Biology and Economics. Sarah Fernandez will attend Bryn Mawr College majoring in Art History and English. Sofia Hegstrom will attend Colby College majoring in Environmental Studies. Ethan Warren will attend Carleton College majoring in Psychology.  


Posse believes in selecting and placing a group of ten diverse students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential to create supportive, multicultural teams, or Posses, in order to best prepare their scholars for their future. Upon being selected, scholars attend weekly meetings for seven months to address academic excellence, team-building, cross-cultural communication, and leadership in a model called Pre-Collegiate Training.


After a rigorous three-round dynamic application process, these four seniors were chosen to be Posse Scholars.
