According to a study by Hamline management studies, 94 percent of Hamline Elementary' s 4th and 5th graders want to go to college. Though capable and motivated, most do not think they will achieve a college education because of the cost associated with higher education. The reality is that in 2007-2008, 87 percent of Hamline Elementary students received free or reduced price meals at school. For many of these students, attending college is a dream;however, financing a college education does not seem possible. In the spring of 2005, Hamline University's Board of Trustees bestowed the Wesley Award for Faculty to Rita Johnson, professor of Management and Economics and liaison to the Hamline to Hamline Collaboration. This honor came with a $5,000 cash reward. Rita donated her award as seed money to start a scholarship fund to support students who attend Hamline Elementary and later go on to attend Hamline University. By initiating this fund, Rita, and all of those who contributed, seek to impart hope to Hamline Elementary students that they too can achieve their dreams of attending college.

help make the dream of a college education a reality for many
Hamline Elementary students. Thank you!
