(BOULDER, Colo., September 29, 2014) 8z Real Estate is excited to announce that they are sponsoring two additional scholars who were recently accepted into the Greenhouse Scholars program for the class of 2018. The two new scholars sponsored by 8z Real Estate are Crystal Ayala who is attending Regis University, and Ahnika Leroy who is attending the University of Colorado. Both scholars attended high schools in Colorado. Crystal and Ahnika join Jesus Hernandez, a senior at the University of Denver, as current Greenhouse Scholars sponsored by 8z Real Estate.
8z Real Estate has had a commitment to supporting the Greenhouse Scholars program since the company was founded. Whenever a buyer or seller, working with an 8z broker, closes on a property, 8z Real Estate makes a donation on behalf of that client to the Greenhouse Scholars program. 8z Real Estate President and CEO Lane Hornung is not only a member of their development board, but has served as a mentor to a scholar who has since graduated. Hornung explains 8z’s commitment to Greenhouse Scholars, “We are proud to support Greenhouse Scholars because they provide much more than just a scholarship, the experience empowers the scholars to become leaders. These scholars are role models that have persevered through adversity, and have strong ties to their communities. As a community based real estate company, we are glad to support an organization which not only benefits education, but that also has a positive impact on the scholars’ communities.”
The commitment to Greenhouse Scholars will progress in upcoming years. 8z Real Estate has already made a commitment to sponsor a Greenhouse Scholar from the California Peninsula / Bay Area, as Greenhouse Scholars plans to expand into California with the Class of 2019.
Greenhouse Scholars provides a whole person approach which includes comprehensive personal and financial support to high-performing and under-resourced college students. Scholars not only benefit from the scholarship funds, but from the mentorship program, professional networking opportunities, and a summer symposium. The organization believes that by supporting these high performing, low income students, these scholars can give back to their families and communities by the support they receive as a Greenhouse Scholar.
