The Ayers Foundation hosted an End of Year Celebration for the 2010 Ayers Foundation Scholars and their families at both Scott’s Hill High School and Riverside High School. Before the Ayers Foundation Scholars Program was offered, less than 30 percent of high school graduates were attending a four-year, two-year institution or a technical school after graduation. Today, over 90 percent go on to higher education after graduating.
Jim Ayers, Founder of The Ayers Foundation challenged each student that the decision they make right now will most likely affect the quality of their lives for the next 60 years. Ayers encouraged the students to make wise choices and to be successful in their post-secondary education.
