Odum Home first BCH location to see five seniors attend same college
Joseph walks along the roadway that weaves through the Odum Home campus in Pembroke.
The high school senior passes cottages and colorful flower beds as friends catch up with him.
“I applied to three colleges this week,” Samantha, another Odum Home resident, declares from behind.
“Have you applied to any?” she asks.
“No, not yet,” Joseph responds.
“You better come on!” she playfully prods. “If you don’t start soon you’re going to run out of time to apply for financial aid.”
Joseph takes Samantha’s remarks in stride. He and fellow cottage resident Maleki are used to the goading they receive from Samantha, Joann, and Rachel, all seniors living at Odum Home.
