Yonkers High School student Juliany Taveras

Yonkers High School student Juliany Taveras, who participated in the Fulbright Writing Program at Sarah Lawrence last summer, was featured in a Westchester magazine article entitled, "High-Achieving Students from the Yonkers School District." The article also cites the positive influence of Yonkers Partners in Education (YPIE) on these and other students. Sarah Lawrence has partnered with YPIE since 2010; graduate writing students work with teens in several Yonkers high schools who are applying to college, offering guidance on the essay-writing process. The Summer 2011 issue of the InTouch newsletter contains a story on this partnership.
