Kenwood Academy High School valedictorian Arianna Alexander was accepted into 26 colleges and awarded over $3,000,000 in scholarship money.
Arianna Alexander was accepted into 26 colleges – including six Ivy League universities – and was awarded a combined total of more than $3 million in scholarships, ABC’s Chicago station WLS reported.
Arianna graduated as valedictorian of her class at Kenwood Academy High School in Chicago, Illinois, and earned a 5.1 grade point average on a 4.0 scale.
After looking at various colleges the Chicago graduate will attend the University of Pennsylvania starting this fall. This is the same school that Brittney Exline attended back in 2007. At the age of 15 years old Brittney became the youngest African American female accepted into an Ivy League school. I blogged about Brittney back in 2007 and 2009.
Congrats to Arianna!!
