Black Graduation 2016: A Celebration of Excellence is a community based celebration of our young people being on the right side of the graduation rate and on a trajectory to success.
The event will honor recent graduates recognizing their accomplishment as well as the infinite possibilities for their futures. Special guests who exemplify excellence in their fields will pass on words of wisdom to our young graduates as they prepare for success in their next phase of life.
