She, along with 11 other individuals, will be recognized for overcoming challenges to achieve professional and personal success, and will be added to the Member Class of 2018. “The Horatio Alger Association stands for integrity, honesty and resilience – qualities that Reba certainly exemplifies,” said Matthew Rose, president of Horatio Alger Association in a statement. He adds: “She has faced numerous challenges in both her early career and personal tragedies, with admirable strength and grace. Reba inspires us all with her tenacity and always upbeat attitude. Her positive outlook is contagious and she will serve as an excellent role model for our Scholars.” Horatio Alger Association of Distinguished Americans, Inc. is a nonprofit organization honoring the achievements of individuals and encouraging youth to pursue their dreams through higher education.
