Local Student Accepted to Harvard

Jill Graver receives once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

 

by Home Page Staff - May 11, 2018

This year, Harvard University’s acceptance rate is 4.59%. This fall, Jillian Graver from Wellsboro High School is going to be a part of that percentage. On today’s broadcast, Jillian expresses that she is hungry to learn more, and she wanted to challenge herself. Visiting and applying to Harvard wasn’t her first inclination, but as soon as Jillian stepped foot onto the campus, she fell in love. “Never in a million years did I think I would be accepted,” she stated. But she proved herself wrong. She also shared she is most excited about meeting her future classmates. “[During] an admitted students weekend, I got to meet so many awesome and amazing, interesting people – and I’m just excited to be able to do that for the next four years,” said Graver.

Not only will she be attending Harvard University, but she has received numerous awards and scholarships as well. Notably, she won a national scholarship titled The Hagan Scholarship. This scholarship is for rural students to assist them in graduating, debt free. The program pays a particular percentage of tuition per semester and provides summer workshops on subjects such as leadership and investment. The scholarship will also fund any study-abroad trip that Jillian chooses during her junior year, and will provide her with $1,000 to invest for the future.

“This opportunity has really shown me how much this community supports each other,” said Graver. “It’s just an amazing opportunity, I feel so blessed.”

Graver’s accomplishments preceding her acceptance include being named to distinguished honor roll, student of the month, team captain for Wellsboro volleyball. She also serves as this year’s chorus Vice-President and is also the NHS vice-president.

On behalf of all of us here at The Home Page Network, we wish Jillian the very best in all her college endeavors. Our prayers are with you Jill! We know you will make us proud.
