Charles Jenson from ERA earns $40,000 scholarship

The College Board is a non-profit organization that works to expand access to higher education. In 2018, they launched the College Board Opportunity Scholarship to provide students with the chance to earn money for college by completing various parts of the college application process. 

Recently, Charles Jensen from Eagle Ridge Academy was one of 25 seniors awarded this $40,000 scholarship on Good Morning America. 

“When I received this scholarship, I was ecstatic. It felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. This scholarship is important for me because my parents already had some financial burdens, so I was limited on options of where I could go to college. Now I will be able to consider more options.”

Charles plans on pursuing a bachelor’s degree in computer science or software engineering after graduation. 

Congratulations Charles! We are #27JProud of your commitment to pursuing a higher education and cannot wait to see your continued success!
