Student, Jessica Ditter, Discusses What Opportunity Looks Like for Her

Updated: Mar 26

“Alone, we can do so little; Together we can do so much”

- Helen Keller

Jessica Ditter, a sophomore at University High School, joined our very first Junior Board of Directors for the 2020-21 school year. Jessica has chosen to get involved in several extracurricular activities throughout her school career. "Being involved throughout high school has helped me in so many ways. It has opened my mind to new ideas and accomplishments. It has also taught me how to become a responsible and motivated teenager." Jess participates in a plethora of activities including track, our junior board, key club, and continues to look for ways to get involved in her community. "Key Club is what started my involvement in the community, signing up for events such as the Diaper Drive and the Annual Christmas Celebration in Weld County." Through these events, Jess was able to see the impact a little support can bring to her community.

"Seeing the kids' faces light up as they receive Christmas Gifts that they normally wouldn't get is something I will remember forever. Little involvements like this are what really count."

The Success Foundation is excited to be raising dollars for the Delia & John W. Haefeli Opportunity Fund at our 11th Annual Breakfast. Established to help close equity gaps, the fund will help remove financial barriers for District 6 students and give students the opportunity to participate in programs regardless of their economic status. The fund is currently supporting internet access for remote learners. Students can apply for funding to cover a plethora of expenses including academic course fees, extracurricular activity costs, testing fees, project materials, career certification fees, or supplies needed to participate in a career pathway program. The Opportunity Fund allows students to pursue the opportunities needed for a successful future.

While the breakfast may look different this year, our students need you more than ever. Join us on April 7th between 7 and 9am for our "Drive-Thru Breakfast" in the Northridge Parking Lot. "Supporting the community at our Annual Breakfast will turn that little bit of involvement into the biggest impact.”
