Alumna to be honored as Delaware Futures product


 

September 21, 2009

DSU alumnus Ronika Money, class of 2002, will be honored as a successful alumnus of the Delaware Futures Program at the organization’s Alumni Luncheon to be held at the DuPont Gold Room at 12 noon Friday, Oct. 16. Jill Biden, wife of U.S. Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Jr., will be the keynote.

Ms. Money, currently a coordinator for the Student Services and Involvement at Pennsylvania State University at Brandywine, is spent five year as part of the Delaware Futures Program while she attended Newark High School, Del. She credits the Delaware Futures Program for being instrumental in preparing her for higher education.  

“It allowed for me to complete my four years at Del State by paying for my tuition,” I am a first gen college student, and I didn’t even know what a FASTA Form was before Del. Futures.

Since 1994, Delaware Futures provides academic, social and motivational support and cultural enrichment that empowers economically disadvantaged high school students to recognize and fulfill their unrealized potential and become matriculated college students.

Not only did Ms. Money earn her bachelor of science in psychology at DSU, but she also went on to earn a master of arts in higher education from Indiana University.
