2021 Annual Report
Dear Scholars, Families, Volunteers, and OJS Supporters,
When I think about greeting you my friends, I think about how everything has changed and nothing feels quite the same. Life felt upside down in 2020. While the year saw our world forever changed, our little corner of it thrived and it thrived because of scholars, parents, volunteers, and donors who refused to quit. Our staff, board, and donors were deeply committed to turning college dreams into reality for students facing new and mounting set-backs. To these individuals, much is owed, thank you.
As an agency, we experienced profound perseverance in the face of adversity. Soon we hope to see you again in person, but also appreciate the swift virtual strides we’ve made to already excellent OJS programs. We trust those efforts will result in continued stability and success. I thank you for safely sticking together in 2020. We are beyond thrilled for what 2021 will bring and we’d be honored if you came along with us!
