                   Impossible Dream Coming True
               Clarendon Students To Visit New York

For additional information:  Jeremy Rogoff, 610-256-1004 or jgrogoff@gmail.com



Twenty eight rising 11th grade students from Clarendon High School
will be visiting New York June 3-6, thanks to community efforts and
the donations of over 200 donors from all over the country. The
supporters contributed over $42,000 to make the trip possible,
according to teacher Jeremy Rogoff, who organized the trip.

"This idea began as an impossible dream for our students," Rogoff
said. "But it's living proof that with the help of others impossible
dreams can come true."

Clarendon is in Monroe County, one of the 100 poorest counties in the
United States.

"These students have performed exceptionally well on their math state
achievements tests and are now afforded the opportunity to explore an
area of the country they have never visited as a tribute to their
academic achievements," Rogoff said. "The purpose of the trip is to
expose them to the cultural richness, historical landmarks and
educational opportunities New York City has to offer. Most of the
students have never even flown on an airplane or been to another state
before."

Flying from Memphis, the Clarendon students will be visiting Columbia
University, New York University and Barnard College; attending a
Broadway show; visiting the Clinton Foundation offices; going to the
"Today" show; and visiting the 9/11 memorial, The Statue of Liberty,
Greenwich Village and Harlem.

"It's a packed schedule for three days," Rogoff said., "But I've never
seen a group of young people more excited about the opportunity. For
many of them it will be a life-changing experience."

Rogoff, 25, a Philadelphia native and Washington University in St.
Louis graduate, has been teaching at Clarendon High School since 2011
with Teach for America.This summer he is moving to Washington D.C.
where he will continue teaching within the KIPP charter school
network.

"These students and Clarendon will always be part of my life," Rogoff
said. "I may be moving to a different location, but I am still only a
phone call, text message or email away. My expectations for the
students are high. They are special. and I will always be one of their
biggest advocates going forward."
