Hidden Promise Scholars will mentor with college students at their home schools and participate in an array of campus visits.

Upon high school graduation, Hidden Promise Scholars who enroll at Glenville State College receive an annual scholarship. The annual grant is renewable throughout their enrollment at GSC as full-time students maintaining standard academic progress.
Similar 'Meet and Greet' events are planned for each of the thirty-seven counties and Belpre, Ohio school systems that participate in the GSC Hidden Promise Scholars Program. "These community gatherings provide the opportunity to discuss the program in a casual setting and allow the scholars to meet their mentors in person. They are a very important part of the program, and I love having them," said Boggs.
