Urban Champions College Chat with a few Lanier and KIPP seniors. The long hours and hard work with Life Coaches are paying off with dozens of acceptance letters. The excitement is motivation on the completion of scholarship applications and dialog with College soccer coaches. Graduation countdown: 133 days.
