V&E and Pepco Holding’s Higher Achievement Program

Friday, March 31, 2017

The DC office partnered with Pepco Holdings and hosted students from the Higher Achievement Program. The Higher Achievement Program is a rigorous afterschool and summer academic program that closes the opportunity gap for middle school youth in at-risk communities. Through fostering learning and mentoring students, Higher Achievement produces college-bound “scholars” with the character, confidence, and skills to succeed. On average, 95% of scholars who complete Higher Achievement advance to top academic high school programs and 93% advance to college. Higher Achievement has been important in advancing youth in Washington. It was founded in DC in 1975 and has expanded to Alexandria, Baltimore, Richmond, and Pittsburgh. 

Adrianne Goins (WAS/CCL) and Elizabeth Krabill McIntyre (WAS/CCL) coordinated the event along with former V&E associate, Andrea Halverson Harper (Associate General Counsel at Pepco) and Peter Meier (VP Legal Services at Pepco). Attorneys and staff worked through different scenarios to teach students about negotiations. A special thanks to Craig Seebald (WAS/CCL) and Joe Garcia (WAS/TAX) for providing the program overview.
