                 Bridges to a Brighter Future
     Kappa Class Goes to College
   The largest class to ever graduate from the Bridges to a Brighter Future program was the Kappa class, with 27
students! They graduated from Bridges in summer 2008. We are very pleased to announce that ALL 27 graduated
from high school! We are even more excited to announce that of the students who are citizens and eligible to go
to college, 100% have been admitted to college or the military, and 91% are enrolled and attending this fall. Two
students (9%) have deferred admission to Fall 2010 due to personal circumstances. Here is a list of the students
and the schools they are attending:

Bridges to a Brighter Future Receives
     National and Local Awards!
Excellence Award
     In April, Bridges to a Brighter Future was awarded the Summer
Excellence Award by the National Summer Learning Association, (formal-
ly the Johns Hopkins Center for Summer Learning) at the 2009 National
Summer Learning Conference! This highly competitive national award
recognizes outstanding summer programs that demonstrate
                                 excellence in accelerating academ-
                                 ic achievement and promoting positive development for young people. The
                                 Excellence in Summer Learning Award seeks to find and draw national attention to
                                 exemplary programs which provide and expand access to high-quality summer
                                 learning experiences for all young people.
                                      Eighty summer programs applied for the award. The selection process was
                                 rigorous and involved five levels of review. Bridges was one of three programs
                                 to be awarded. “Bridges to a Brighter Future stands out as an exemplary summer
                                 learning program, especially for teenagers,” says Ron Fairchild, executive director
                                 of the National Summer Learning Association. “The program builds academic suc-
                                 cess, self-confidence, leadership, resiliency and life skills. It tries to meet individual
                                 student needs and creates a culture of high expectations. This program is a perfect
                                 example of the kind of educational innovation that closes the achievement gap.”

                     In His Own Words: Yuki Koyama
                                   The following speech was given by Co-Valedictorian, Yuki Koyama at the Bridges
                               Graduation Banquet on July 10, 2009. Yuki is a student at Southside High School. He will
                               be the first in his family to go to college.

                                     I’ve been asked by many people to explain what exactly Bridges is, but it is always
                                hard to answer because it is impossible to describe in mere words. If I tell them about
                                the classes, workshops, and field trips; they assume that it is like school, but it is so much
                                more than that. I don’t know if I speak for everyone when I say this, but for me, Bridges
                                is the ray of light in a dark cave. It is an opportunity that we have been blessed with to
                                better our lives and prepare us for our future. Every opportunity is nothing more than
                                a chance to live life to the fullest. I have learned so much from Bridges these past three
                                years. Living with my fellow students and counselors, and everything we have been
                                through together, has brought us together to form one big family. I’ve gained something
                                from each and everyone one of you. I would also like to thank the teachers, Papa Chop,
                                and especially Mrs. Swartz, for making this experience what it is and all the time they take
                                out of their lives for us. I will cherish the memories for the rest of my life. The summers
                              spent here have been the best three summers of my life. To the Mu’s and Nu’s, I have a few
 words of advice. Live life to the fullest so you don’t have any regrets and treasure these moments you spend together
 because time at Bridges goes by way too quickly. The world may be divided but at Bridges we are united and when
 we all came here our first years we came as many and now we leave as one. The world may try to push us down but
 remember, we can accomplish anything we set our minds to because we are born leaders, rising legends. Even if life
 is hard, keep your head up and go forth and do great things.

          Alumni Profiles: Alpha Class Graduates
                                     Phuong Vo and Na’Imah Thompson Forney are members of the first Bridges class,
                                 the Alpha class, and were two of the first students to attend Bridges to a Brighter Future
                                 when it began in 1997.
                                     When Phuong Vo began the Bridges program, it was only his second year in America.
                                 As a result, English was very difficult for him. Phuong states, “I was very fortunate to at-
                                 tend Bridges. Not only did it educate me, Bridges also gave me the opportunity to prac-
                                 tice my English skills as I was living with my American friends 24 hours a day for 4 weeks
                                 each summer.”
                                     Phuong graduated from Southside High School in 2000 and then enrolled at Clemson
                                 University. He received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Clemson in 2005. He married
                                 his college sweetheart Chau Hong in 2006, the same year she earned a Doctor of Pharma-
                                 cy degree from USC-Columbia. Phuong and Chau have two boys, Aiden (22 months) and
                                 Every (4 months). Phuong is now an Engineer employed at Amec, an engineering firm in
                                 Greenville headquartered in London. Congratulations Phuong on your professional and
                                 personal success!
                                 Phuong is pictured here with his son Aiden.

      Na’Imah Thompson Forney graduated from Carolina High School with honors. She
 remembers one of her biggest challenges in high school was getting her grade point
 average up to a level enabling her to enroll in college. Na’Imah states, “My freshman year I
 did just enough to get by and settled for an average GPA.” After starting the Bridges program,
 I learned how important it is to have good grades. If I wanted to go to college (which I did)
 I had to make my grades a priority as well as prepare for the SAT. I felt like being at Bridges
 gave me a head start for the next school year. I also was able to get a lot of practice for taking
 the SAT.” Na’Imah did indeed succeed! She graduated from Clemson in 2004 with a degree in
 Textile Management and Marketing. Na’Imah currently works at Ferguson Enterprises as an
 account manager in Irvine, CA. She has been happily married for a little over a year to Carlos
 Forney. Carlos is serving in the United States Marine Corps. They live in Orange County, CA.
