Dear DPS Community,
This week, I am delighted to share the story of three George Washington High School graduates — Kai Suematsu, Samariddin Meliboev, and Jamal Giornazi — who currently attend CU Boulder and run the Kobu foundation. Last week, the three were recognized at the 2021 Denver Scholarship Foundation (DSF) Gala for serving their community and tackling the issue of food insecurity all while working on their college plans at the GW Future Center.
Congratulations, Kai, Samariddin and Jamal! Watch their journey in this video from the 2021 DSF Gala.
I want to also extend my gratitude to the Denver Scholarship Foundation for helping lift our high school scholars toward great futures. Thanks to the partnership with DSF, there are Future Centers in many of our high schools that help make college possible for thousands of our DPS graduates each year.
Dr. Alex Marrero
