Today is one of those days when the success of our program is clear. This morning, we celebrated our graduates: 6 High School grads and 23 GED grads. Our keynote speaker was Maurice Raspberry, a CHMO grad as well as our first college grad – he holds a BSEd from Harris Stowe University. Seeing all those proud faces in caps and gowns and listening to words of encouragement and praise was a testament to the potential our youth each possess. Today was also a day to recognize the many volunteers who bring their time and gifts to Covenant House. We celebrated this occasion as a community — youth, staff, volunteers, board members and families — with a picnic on our parking lot. Congratulations to all our graduates and thank you to all those who made their accomplishment possible.
