The 13th Annual A Toast to Brighter Futures took place virtually on May 19, 2022. It was an exciting evening of friendly competition and celebration!
Each spring our Futures and Options Junior Board hosts A Toast to Brighter Futures to raise funds for our Dream Big scholarships.
These college scholarships are awarded to exemplary high school seniors who have participated in Career Essentials, the Internship Program, and/or the Externship Experience. The Dream Big scholarship panel, comprised of Futures and Options Board and Advisory Council members, Junior Board members, staff, and alumni, seeks to honor young people who embody the six hallmarks of a Futures and Options student: communication, integrity, leadership, professionalism, teamwork, and an interest in exploring careers.
These college scholarships are named in honor of our founder, Dr. Barbara L. Christen, and former Executive Director Patricia S. Machir. Since 2012, Futures and Options has awarded more than $100,000 in college scholarships.
