Deborah Bial: Deborah Bial is the president and founder of The Posse Foundation, a youth leadership development and college success organization that sends teams (Posses) of students from diverse backgrounds to selective colleges and universities. Since 1989 The Posse Foundation has identified over 8,400 Posse Scholars. These young people have won $1.2 billion in leadership scholarships from Posse’s partner colleges and universities, are persisting and graduating at a rate of 90 percent and are active leaders both on their campuses and now in the workforce. Bial has grown The Posse Foundation from a concept into one of the most comprehensive college success programs in the United States. Today it supports programs in Atlanta, the Bay Area, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York City and Washington D.C. Bial completed her undergraduate degree at Brandeis University, earned her master’s and doctoral degrees from Harvard University, and in October 2007, received a prestigious MacArthur Fellowship from The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
