SCO Family of Services Celebrates Graduates in Foster Care Program with Surprise Guests
July 10, 2020 / SCO News
Congratulations to the 151 graduates in our Foster Care program! This year, our Foster Care program celebrated graduates from pre-k, kindergarten, middle school, high school, and college. There were three graduation celebrations and graduation parades led by Stephen Hanmer, Director of Education and Permanency Support at SCO Family of Services. Each student received their cap and gown and a gift that was delivered by SCO staff. Thanks to our friends for joining us in congratulating the Class of 2020. We know this is not what you expected your senior year to be like. But you did it! You’ve faced the COVID-19 pandemic, a unique challenge, altering your plans and expectations. Your resilience demonstrates how adaptable you are.
Special congratulatory messages came from New York’s very own, Alicia Keys, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Lisa Arrindell Anderson; Former NFL player, LaJuan Ramsey; American television and film actor, Blair Underwood; and WNBA player, Tamera Young.
