Cody Rivera – Scholarship Recipient

RIVERA2Cody Rivera ’17 used his winter break as an opportunity to give back by bringing Syracuse youth who are in foster care to HWS for a college tour. Through collaboration with the non-profit Youth in Progress, Rivera invited seven high school students in foster care to learn from HWS staff and students about the admissions process, scholarship opportunities, academics and other programs and services that are unique to a college campus.“I thought this would be a good opportunity for these kids to see what their options are,” says Rivera who himself grew up in foster care. “Many people who grow up in foster care don’t know that there are scholarships and other types of support that can help them reach their goals. I want them to be able to see college as a reality.”
