Bridge to College Program in Nesher Welcomes New and Continuing Students
Tenth graders and their ISEF tutors kicked off 2017 with their second group workshop of the “Bridge to College Program” at the Nesher Community Center on January 1st. The newcomers were joined by continuing 11th and 12th graders in the program, now in its third year in Nesher.
Special guest, Nesher’s mayor and ISEF alumnus, Avi Binamo, proudly spoke of the program’s success, and urged students to maximize the resources given to them. He said that ISEF is one of the most important organizations in Israel, one that contributed to his personal and professional achievements and those of many of his fellow ISEF alumni who are leaders in medicine, law, public administration and the private sector.
Tomer Samarkandi, Executive Director of ISEF Israel, thanked Mayor Binamo and the Nesher municipality for their strong partnership and support. He encouraged the pupils to believe in themselves and to see their ISEF tutors as role models, who have walked the same path toward a bright future. The mayor and Mr. Samarkandi wished the students much success in their journey toward fulfilling their potential and realizing their academic dreams.
