“It made sense for us to work with Achieva to give away scholarships,” said Dr. John Meyer, president of Hodges University. “Both of our organizations are engaged with the community, and we provide pathways for people to better their lives and, we’re neighbors, after all!”

“We are proud to help members of our communities gain access to further education that can in turn help provide fresh perspectives and opportunities in life,” said Achieva’s Chief Marketing Officer David Oak “Our founding members were teachers and theirs is a mission we continue to believe strongly in.”
