On Friday, April 6, 2018, 24 more young men from Chicago CRED walked across the graduation stage. After months of work through Penn Foster’s online degree program, they earned high school diplomas, another step in the journey toward transforming their lives and communities.
In his remarks at the ceremony, Emerson Collective Managing Partner Arne Duncan said, “Despite all the challenges and all the pain you sometimes feel, I am wildly optimistic about where our city is going to go. And it’s not because of what us older folk are going to do. It’s going to be because of your hard work, your leadership.”
