LINK Unlimited Scholars President and CEO Dr. Roslind Blasingame-Buford (Dr. Roz) was recently featured on ABC 7’s Heart and Soul.

Dr. Roz’s influence as a trailblazer in youth development, education, and community service continues to inspire, equip, and elevate LINK’s Scholars. We are grateful for her tireless leadership and this segment reflects her unwavering commitment in championing high quality education for all youth. The piece also highlights the positive impact of the LINK family through the perspectives of LINK Board Member Bill Fausone, his collegiate scholar Martin Hunter (17) and Dartesia Pitts (96), alumni and current mentor to Coretta Simmons (18).

As Chicago’s only college and career success program focused solely on African American youth, we are excited to continue our efforts to┬áprepare our highly talented scholars to become lifelong learners and civically engaged leaders.

A special thank you to ABC 7’s Heart & Soul for the opportunity to showcase our amazing work that we do on behalf of our scholars and their families.
