School: David Douglas High School
Quentin is a busy 16-year-old who balances his wrestling career and demanding class schedule with College Possible’s intense after-school curriculum because he’s determined to be the first in his family to graduate from college. During a recent session, Quentin was sorting through a list scholarships when he exclaimed, “When I have kids, I’m gonna make them do this. I’m going to find scholarships for kindergarteners and just do that for every year they are in school!”
Quentin is an excellent example of how College Possible students are committed to breaking the cycle of poverty in their families and creating better futures for generations to come. He understands that the hard work he is putting in now will ensure his children have a better life.
