This year 79 women earned their High School Equivalency diplomas (on the TASC test) and another 25 completed the GO College Prep program and are headed to CUNY to begin college. We celebrated these achievements on Thursday night, June 18th, with an energetic and fabulous graduation ceremony here at Grace Outreach.
Over 150 graduates, family members, community members, and Grace Outreach staff gathered to take part in the celebration. The class valedictorian, Alicia Suckie, gave a moving speech about the importance of earning her diploma (she is using it to go to college this fall!). Another graduate, Nicayne Green, serenaded the crowd with Mariah Carey’s Hero which brought the crowd to its feet.
The graduates throwing their caps in the air as one brought the ceremony to a rousing close.
