Grace Raber Named Jack Kent Cooke Semifinalist
“The students in this semifinalist cohort are some of the most high-achieving and driven in the country,” said Seppy Basili, executive director of the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation. “They have achieved success well beyond that of many of their more advantaged peers, and we know they will accomplish far more in college and beyond.”
Students applied from all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Armed Forces Pacific, and American Samoa — representing 3,782 schools.
Cooke College Scholars are selected based on exceptional academic ability and achievement, financial need, persistence, service to others and leadership.
