Harvard at the finish line

When Josh joined College Possible at David Douglas High School two years ago, he didn’t think he’d be going to one of the most prestigious universities in the nation.

Now, Josh is the first College Possible student to earn admission to Harvard University.

“Before College Possible, I didn’t have much figured out. I just figured I’d go to community college,” he said. Josh graduated on June 11th from David Douglas High School.

Josh’s story and the challenges he and other low-income students face was illustrated in Willamette Week.
