Watch Our Seniors Video!
The annual Oishei High School Scholarship Luncheon is one of the highlights of the year at the Foundation. It is a time to welcome our incoming freshmen who have been awarded a scholarship to attend one of WNY’s private high schools and a time to congratulate and bid farewell to our graduating seniors.
Most of all, the luncheon has been a time to bring all of our scholars together with their school representatives, our partners at Education Collaborative of WNY, and Buffalo Prep to celebrate their achievements and to share friendship and fellowship!
Like so many events that have been postponed or canceled, we were not able to hold this year’s luncheon due to the Covid-19 health crisis. We are acutely aware that this follows so many important events and milestones that have been taken away from our students, particularly our seniors.
Prior to the crisis, we had a chance to sit down with our graduating seniors to hear about their hopes for the future, their proudest moments, and their advice for the incoming freshmen. While they now have bigger challenges and greater worries than when this video was taken, we have great confidence that they will navigate these bewildering times with strength and grace.
We hope you enjoy getting to know Jasmine, Jalen, Phuong, Rashad, Love, Lay Mya, Chalise, Angel, Journey, Dominic, Yayla, Luke, and Mychal in this video. We are incredibly proud of all of them!
Our sincerest congratulations to all of our graduating seniors!
