Our High School Scholars

adrian 2015 croppedA big thank you to the Uncommon Good staff.  I cannot emphasize how you all have shaped my life and guided me every step of the way. Thank you all for your help because without you, going to Tulane would not have been possible. I love y’all.

– Adrian, Class of 2015
