GRB Class of 2014 President Earns a Full-ride to College


Tevin Simard, a senior at G. Ray Bodley, has been awarded the Gates Millennium Scholarship.

The program selects 1,000 students each year to receive an all-expenses paid scholarship to a four year college or university of their choosing.

Pictured is graduating senior Tevin Simard, the Class President of 2014, who received a full-ride scholarship to Georgetown University. He will also travel to Jordan this summer to learn Arabic.

Simard was also chosen for the National Security Language Initiative for Youth (NSLI-Y) program that provides merit-based scholarships for eligible high school students to learn less commonly taught languages in overseas immersion programs.

He will stay with a host family for six-weeks in Jordan, and learn Arabic.

The program curriculum is designed to facilitate, through immersion and intensive learning, the equivalent of one year of Arabic instruction at a U.S. university.

With Ramadan beginning on June 29, Simard will be able to witness the holy month first-hand.

He will also visit the Ancient City of Petra and other historical sites.

Simard will attend Georgetown University in the fall, and leave for Jordan just before Fulton’s graduation ceremony.
