Fedcap Career Design School Graduation–a Moving Celebration of the Power of Possible!
Wednesday, June 26th, marked a day of celebration as over 170 graduates of the Career Design School marched across the John Jay College stage to receive their certificates of achievement in Security, Home Health, Culinary Arts, Customer Service, Total Facilities Management, and Document Imaging/Office Administration. Cheered on by over 500 friends and family, the graduates celebrate new beginnings as they join the workforce and march toward economic well-being and security.
“It is one of my favorite days of the year,” said Christine McMahon, President and CEO of The Fedcap Group. “While our graduates are earning certificates in their chosen vocational areas, these certificates represent so much more. So many have overcome challenges to get to that stage. It is a thrill to honor the graduates’ achievements.”
Graduation featured speeches by three Career Design School participants, Devon Liburd, Jenny Medina, and Dominique Santos, who inspired their fellow graduates and the audience with stories of their journeys to the stage.
“It is so moving to see their joy and to see the graduates’ families and loved ones cheer them on,” said Donald Harreld, Senior Vice-president of the Education practice area. “They have many reasons to be proud of themselves, and we are so proud of them, too.”
Graduation is a pathway to sustainable employment and a better life–it is the Power of Possible in action.
