“Realizing the Dream”:  Celebrating First-Generation College Students

INDIANAPOLIS, November 1, 2017 – Realizing a dream takes commitment, hard work, and, most often, a helping hand from family and others.  And that’s exactly what 30 students from Indiana’s private, non-profit colleges and universities are being celebrated for this Saturday evening, November 4, at the 28th annual “Realizing the Dream” banquet.

Now sophomores, they have realized the dream of being the first in their families to go to college, have been selected by their colleges for outstanding achievement in the freshman year, and are successfully advancing towards completing their bachelor’s degrees.

Made possible by a grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. to the Independent Colleges of Indiana, the event recognizes first-generation students attending ICI campuses, along with their inspirational teachers and families.  The event is being held at the Sheraton Indianapolis at Keystone Crossing, with a reception at 6:00 p.m. and an awards dinner at 7:00 p.m.

Each honored student will receive a $2,500 check to help with college costs, and each student’s selected “most influential” teacher/mentor will receive a $1,000 professional development grant.  One out of every three students on ICI campuses is first-generation. Generous financial aid provided by the campuses themselves, combined with state and federal grants, makes a private college education a possibility for all students in Indiana.

Our keynote speaker for the evening is Valparaiso University alumna Emily Trimble, who manages Tech Point’s Indy Women in Tech program, inspiring women and female students of all ages to pursue opportunities in the technology field.  As part of her role, Emily works to educate employers about the process and needs of potential candidates and serves as a coach and connector between Indy Women in Tech members and potential employers, mentors, and other valuable supporting partners.  Prior to joining Tech Point, she served as campus director for The Iron Yard, a coding school, and as a tech talent recruiter with Vitamin T.

“We are so grateful to the Lilly Endowment for making this inspirational program possible,” says David W. Wantz, ICI president & CEO.  “We are proud, too, that because of the higher graduation rates of our ICI colleges and universities, these students are significantly more likely to realize the dream of completing their degrees in four years.”  

Congratulations
