Congratulations Class of 2020!

Seniors, we are in a world none of us could have anticipated when you participated in your senior interview last summer. Over the last year, you have dedicated your time to a solid application process, scholarship opportunities and a thoughtful college selection. College is
now here, and we know there will be challenges. Remember we are still with you and remain dedicated to helping each of you successfully transition to this new world. Like a true Memphian, you have shown your grit and grind during a tough time, and you have prevailed.
All of us in your REACH Memphis family are proud of you. While we will miss you, we cannot wait to see where your future takes you.

Congratulations!!!!!


All the best now and always,
Bitsy Kasselberg
