Senior Iman Khater, the third graduate of Oak Lawn Community High School in her family, recently learned that she was “matched” to Stanford University as a Questbridge Match Scholarship recipient. Through a unique application process, the scholarship awards high-achieving students who face economic challenges with early admission and full four-year scholarships! Because of her achievements and high academic success, Stanford University awarded Iman a full scholarship that covers tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, and travel expenses.
Iman’s counselor Jason Rhodes described Iman as “incredibly dedicated and thoughtful regarding how she manages her commitments to her school and community, and challenges herself daily to do more and be more. I would also venture to say that she is one of our most respected students by her peers, her teachers and her coaches, being recognized with the Most Outstanding Junior award last spring. Her work ethic, integrity, and ability to form meaningful relationships have endeared her to our staff and will serve her well both in college and beyond.” National Honor Society moderator Jessica Nickless added, “Iman’s zest for success is one that I have only witnessed in a few students over the course of my career. Iman has always served as a role model for her classmates and members of the National Honor Society. She is an exceptional leader, and I am certain the energy she radiates will continue to shine at Stanford University. I am extremely excited to see what comes next for her.”
