We had a new GED tutor start today at Covenant House. He’s pretty special for a few reasons. First of all, he’s an English teacher and we’re always grateful to have teachers working with our youth, but maybe more notable is his affiliation with CHMO. Maurice lived at Covenant House – like all our residents, he began in the crisis program and then progressed into our transitional living program where he thrived. He was part of our Youth Advisory Council and served as an ambassador for CHMO on several occasions. He also kept us all up to date on what was happening here through a newsletter he wrote and produced. Last December, he graduated from Harris Stowe University and moved into his own apartment. He works with ninth graders in the writing lab at Hazelwood Central. It’s great to see him in the halls of the Cov again.
