This year’s Reach for the Stars took place on Friday, May 3, 2019 at the Four Seasons Hotel Austin. We recognized the Class of 2019 and celebrated their 100% acceptance into college and over $17 million in merit-based awards and scholarships.
Dr. Brené Brown, researcher, storyteller and author of five #1 New York Times bestsellers, was honored with the Ann Richards Legacy Award.
Reach for the Stars is the Ann Richards School Foundation’s annual fundraising gala to recognize the graduating class of the Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders and celebrate their bright futures.
Event proceeds support the Ann Richards School Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that ensures Ann Richards School students gain the confidence and skills to apply, attend and graduate from college.
