ONE Amazing Board Member: Sheila Larsen

“Now, more than ever, is the time to step up and support the scholars and our 10,000 Degrees team who fight daily to narrow the educational gaps which are clearly in danger of becoming even wider. I am fully committed to the essential work that 10,000 Degrees has been providing for nearly 40 years in Northern California. We are currently meeting the needs of more than 10,000 students and their families from low-income backgrounds, many of whom are first in their families to attend college. These students are from all over the Bay Area, from San Jose to San Francisco to Sonoma and beyond. While our financial support is essential, what distinguishes 10,000 Degrees is our Fellows, who provide on-campus, hands-on mentoring and advocacy that has enabled over 80% of our students to graduate from a four-year college‚Äďan exceptional statistic when compared to the 31% graduation rate for their peers nationally. We would treasure your support!”
