Celebration of Dreams
Graduation from high school is a great milestone, one many foster teens aren't able to reach. We were so happy to honor our grads at our annual Celebration of Dreams event in June - 43 of our youth in foster care graduated from high school this year.
The event, on June 18, was a great night for the grads, their families and for those who helped them through. We hosted caseworkers, guardians ad litem, magistrates, officials and other supporters.
We thank The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation for helping us put on this big event for our graduates.
This year's event featured Travis Lloyd, a motivational speaker and hip hop artist. The graduates also heard from their peers, two former graduates, Commissioner Todd Portune and supporter Ron McSwain.
