Beating the Odds Summit with former First Lady Michelle Obama

The Greater Washington Community Foundation was proud to join the New Jersey & H Street Educational Foundation to sponsor the Beating the Odds Summit at Dunbar High School in DC. The Summit was hosted by Michelle Obama and her Reach Higher initiative to celebrate and support DC students on their way to college this fall and inspire high school students to attend college. Mrs. Obama shared her experiences and lessons learned during her college career and life. The students had the opportunity to sit down with Mrs. Obama and Michael Wilbon from ESPN to ask questions about college.
