Announcing the Ann Meyers Drysdale scholarship for urban at risk students through Elevate Phoenix. Imagine at risk and under-performing urban public high school students having the opportunity to graduate and participate in a college readiness program that helps them enter and succeed in college with the help of a mentor. That's what the R.I.S.E program does. R.I.S.E. stands for Relationships, Instruction, Support and Equipping. You can make a difference in these students' lives!
