LYNN — The KIPP Academy has two recipients for the Posse Foundation Scholarship: Jose Valera and Anaidys Uribe.
Valera will be attending Bucknell in Lewisburg, Pa., while Uribe will attend Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y. The two seniors have been involved in school activities, and they say they are extremely grateful for the scholarship.
Valera started out doing well his freshman year at KIPP, with a high GPA. However, he took on more responsibilities, such as being the captain of the baseball team and the president of the student council, and due to the heavier load his grades suffered and he did not make honor roll his sophomore year.
