Wilson High School senior Verak Monh earned a four-year, full tuition scholarship from the Posse Foundation to attend Tulane University.  The Posse Foundation identifies, recruits and trains students with extraordinary leadership potential for this scholarship.  Due to the increase of early decision applications, Tulane’s class of 2022 acceptance rate was 17 percent this year, creating the most selective class in the university’s history.
