On June 13, Promise held a College Roundtable to further congratulate the graduating seniors of East Tech High, and welcomed several local college students and graduates to facilitate discussion on what to expect in the world of higher education.
Led by Promise early learning navigator Tatiana Wells, students and leaders broke into intimate groups for conversation. Topics ranged from how to choose the best classes to how it feels to be away from home for the first time.
Families of the students also joined the discussion. For many, these students are the first family members to attend college.
In May, Promise staff attended the seniors’ awards ceremony and presented each graduating scholar with a scholarship on behalf of the Cleveland Central Promise Neighborhood. Learn more here.
