When Durham Magazine leads off its issue on the best and brightest high schools seniors in town with a student from your program, you know you’ve made the grade! So, the Emily K Center gives a huge ‘atta girl’ to our own Vianey Martinez, whose beautiful smile and list of academic and extra-curricular accomplishments a mile long graces the pages of the February/March issue. Editor, Matt Dees, refers to Vianey and her six senior peers as, “smart, talented and worldly beyond their years.” After participating in the Scholars to College program at EKC throughout high school, Vianey will head to college next fall armed with a strong academic base and tools for time management, budgeting and developing healthy college habits. Vianey credits the Emily K program with guiding her through the confusing straits of college admissions and financial aid, as well as other key aspects of being a successful high school student. “My parents have no idea about the process, so it would have been difficult without Emily K,” she said. Great job, Vianey. You have outdone yourself!
