First Generation Screenings

Our screenings of the documentary First Generation were a huge success! The panel discussions featuring ScholarMatch’s Dave Eggers, Diana, Noel, students Jessica and Sandra, Karen Cooper of Stanford University and Michael McKeon of Saint Mary’s College were interesting and insightful. Our student representatives told their personal stories, including their obstacles and triumphs, of being the first in their families to attend college. We are so proud of Jessica and Sandra! Our SF screening of the film at the Roxie Theater was a packed house, every available ticket was sold. With over 200 guests in attendance, it was ScholarMatch’s biggest event to date! The screenings would not have been possible without the support of our amazing donors and people passionate about college access. Thank you!  A special congratulations goes out to Heidi P., winner of the signed copy of Dave Eggers’ new book A Hologram for the King.
