Senior students Lance Pascasio and Diana Navarro were both matched to a top 10 ranking National University in the 2019-2020 Quest Bridge College Match. The enduring process started 6 months ago at the end of summer up until Tuesday when they found out they got matched. Finally, their hard work has paid off. The National College Match is a college admission and scholarship process through which high-achieving, low-income students can be admitted early with a full four-year scholarship worth over $200,000 each. Lance was matched with Duke University and Diana to the University of Chicago.
