Murry Bergtraum High School Mentees Get Creative During College Essay Writing Workshop

Murry Bergtraum High School (MBHS) has over a 25 year relationship with the FWA and is highlighted as being the longest running program in the NYC public school system. Many graduates of this program are the first in their family to complete high school and continue onto college. Since program inception, all MBHS mentees have graduated on time and enrolled in college.

Recently on October 26, Murray Bergtraum High School mentees joined together at a college essay writing workshop, which will teach them the skills need to successfully compose writing samples while in college and beyond.
