Our Graduates are Today’s Frontline Heroes

The Foundation, CollegeTracks & You: Investing in tomorrow’s heroes.

The B-CC HS Educational Foundation supports B-CC’s low-income, first generation-to-college students by funding the CollegeTracks program. With the COVID-19 crisis, our 124 B-CC CollegeTracks 2020 grads are navigating a much more complicated college transition. But with your gifts, CollegeTracks quickly pivoted to a virtual model – ensuring our students are still getting critical support to complete applications, secure financial aid, and prepare for college this fall.

Meet Eleany Yassein: B-CC Class of 2013, CollegeTracks alum, local hero

Eleany graduated from UMBC’s School of Nursing in 2018. Along with many B-CC CollegeTracks alumni, Eleany is a brave healthcare worker in this pandemic.

“I work at George Washington University Hospital, as a Registered Nurse. It’s more stressful [during COVID-19] because we don’t have enough PPE. One of the things I’m still struggling with is the fact that we have to reuse masks. Because of that, I’m scared for my own health, as well as my patients.’ … It makes it challenging for me to do what I love. My passion for the field and support from friends and family has been helping me get through this tough time.”

Students like Eleany are why education is a critical investment.

With your gifts to the Foundation, we fund programs like CollegeTracks – supporting B-CC students who, in turn, serve our community.

Please make your year-end, tax-deductible gift today to ensure every B-CC Baron is prepared to thrive.

Foundation Net Revenue 1996-2018 By the summer of 2018, the Foundation has raised more than $2.9 million to meet that challenge and has been investing in academic excellence at B-CC High School for more than two decades. With new programs and a newly modernized facility that was completed in February 2002, B-CC’s enrollment, reflecting community confidence in the school, has been increasing steadily ever since, from 1,076 students in 1995 to 2,096 students in 2018.

The generosity of alumni, parents, faculty, students, businesses, and community members has made it possible for the Foundation to fund innovative academic support programs that promote high academic standards and support success for all B-CC students.
