Hanna DeBord

Alleghany Center CCP Student, Hanna DeBord, Accepted into Yale University on a full 4-Year Scholarship

In Hanna’s own words…

My name is Hanna DeBord, I am a senior at Alleghany High School, and I am enrolled in Wilkes Community College as a Career and College Promise student. In my free time I run cross country, play golf, soccer, and tennis, and work as a freelance writer as well as getting involved in various community and volunteerism activities. Through a lot of hard work, and the support of all my high school, WCC, and upward bound family, I was recently awarded a full-ride scholarship to Yale through the QuestBridge program.


QuestBridge is an opportunity for low-income, high-achieving, typically first-gen students to attend some of the most prestigious universities in the United States (there are 42 options in total). The process all starts the summer before Senior year, the initial application allows you to apply to become a finalist in the Match Program. If awarded finalist status, the applicant can rank up to 12 schools from the list of “College Partners.” The application materials will be sent to each of these schools, and the school that is the highest on the rankings form that accepts the applicant is the school the applicant must attend, it is not guaranteed that you will match, but if you do, it is a binding decision, so it is important to only rank schools that appeal to you. You can learn more about this opportunity at QuestBridge.org.

The Impact of CCP

Being a CCP Student has allowed me the opportunity to explore subjects in a far more in-depth manner than my high school courses would have allowed- this opportunity to learn and achieve in a higher education environment as a high school student has improved my enthusiasm for furthering my education and making my future dreams become a tangible reality. I would like to thank the WCC Faculty and Staff for facilitating this wonderful and enlightening experience!

In closure, if you are a student reading this, or even someone considering bettering yourself. It is never too late to start improving. Always strive for the future and never give up even when it seems impossible- I believe in you!
