#FindingTheGood: HS Senior With Perfect Attendance Since Pre-School Nets $430K In Scholarships!

Remember when you were excited to have perfect attendance for *just* one semester?

June 26, 2020


I remember being excited to have perfect attendance for one semester, but every day of school from pre-school through elementary through high school?

That's over 4,600 days of school. HOW AMAZING IS THAT?!

That's exactly what Ashanti Palmer accomplished this year in Mount Vernon, NY. The valedictorian of Nellie A. Thornton High School has not missed a single day of school. Ever. Incredible.

She remarked, "It wasn’t until 10th grade that I realized I hadn’t missed a day, and then I wanted to keep up the streak."

Dr. Kenneth R. Hamilton, Mount Vernon City School District Superintendent said, “Her perfect attendance record throughout her many years in the District have helped build a foundation of academic excellence that she will utilize in the next chapter as a student of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.”

As a result, Ashanti received multiple scholarships totaling over $430,000, covering *all* expenses related to her four-year college experience at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), pursuing an engineering degree. Way to go!
