Every spring, Pine Street hosts a graduation ceremony for the men and women who completed our workforce development programs during the prior year. Students wear caps and gowns, receive certificates of achievement and invite family members and friends to celebrate their accomplishment. For many, the event is the first graduation the students have experienced.
Thank you to everyone who made our June 2018 graduation an inspirational day, especially to Natixis Investment Managers for presenting the event.
In a heartwarming and motivational keynote, guest speaker Reverend Liz Walker told graduates, “As you lift yourself up, you lift us all up.”
Kenneth L., this year’s graduate speaker, shared his story about his journey out of homelessness. “I now have a place to call home thanks to the staff here. I thank everyone at Pine Street from the bottom of my heart – you never gave up on me.”
Check out some of the photos from the event on our Facebook page, and stay tuned for our 2019 date!
