This year’s Jay Uiberall Scholars, a program of REACH Memphis, were treated to lunch at Napa Cafe Saturday where they shared their experiences in the program.

The Jay Uiberall Scholars program is a follow-up program for students who have already participated in a summer study travel program through REACH Memphis. Fifteen scholars selected by REACH Memphis are building their communication skills by participating in workshops and interactive sessions over the course of ten Saturdays. Students worked with mentors, participated in mock interviews, prepared their resumes and college essays, learned proper etiquette and much more.

In addition to celebrating their accomplishments in the program, several students shared samples of their creative writing, some are linked below. We are so excited about the work done this year and can’t wait for the next group of scholars!
