Press Release: First MET Student Admitted to Harvard University

Press Release: Oregon Islamic Academy Senior, Ibrahim Ibrahim (Class of 2018), First MET Student Admitted to Harvard University in Fall 2018

Tigard, Oregon, USA ­12/15/2017 - On behalf of the Muslim Educational Trust Board of Trustees, Board of Directors, and Staff, we wish to extend our warmest congratulations to Oregon Islamic Academy Senior student, Ibrahim Ibrahim (Class of 2018), for being MET's First Student to be admitted to Harvard Class of 2022 under the Early Action program. Praise be to Allah, this is a huge milestone and a unique accomplishment for our Oregon Islamic Academy High School that celebrates its 10th Anniversary this year. We are especially humbled and eternally grateful for this momentous honor granted by Allah, the Most Gracious. Over the years, by the grace and blessings of Allah SWT, Oregon Islamic Academy High School has grown and developed into a solid institution that produces young men and women who are the embodiment of Islam and who are successful citizens of the world with a God-centered outlook on life.
This exemplifies the following quote by the Founders of the Muslim Educational Trust, Gail Ramjan, Ayoob Ramjan, and Wajdi Said: "In 1993, MET was founded with the dream to help create an open, empowering, and collaborative atmosphere within the Muslim community in the greater Portland area. Over the last twenty one years, MET has made significant strides in the development of Portland's Islamic based education. MET's focus on education through positive interaction with Muslims and non-Muslims and honest communication with the media and public officials has positively impacted not only the people of Portland, but well beyond our local area. The greatest impact has been on a core group of students who have spent their formative years at the Islamic School of MET and Oregon Islamic Academy. These students have grown to be successful academically, but more importantly, to become the embodiment of what it means to be a confident, active, believing and practicing young American Muslim. In shaa Allah (God willing), it will be these very same students who grow into leadership roles in the coming years and help lead our community to be in the vanguard of those who engage in bridge-building dialogue, faith-based community service, and stewardship of Earth and humanity."
Congratulations to Ibrahim Ibrahim and to Oregon Islamic Academy for this heartwarming achievement.
