College Graduates

On Friday, May 18, 2018 we celebrated a historic moment for our organization as we saw our first cohort to the completion of their post-secondary pursuits. The Student U Class of 2014 became the Student U Graduating Class of 2018, and they have achieved the incredible milestone of graduating from college and starting their journeys in the “real world.” We have now celebrated 32 college graduates from the High School Graduation Classes of 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017. We remain committed to supporting each graduate as they continue to grow and become the powerful people we know them to be.
