Congratulations to Cohort 23!!!

Yesterday graduates, family members, staff, board members, partners, supporters, friends, alumni and Cohort 24 all came together to celebrate the grit, power, passion and many accomplishments of our newest alumni. 🎓 After two years of virtual celebrations, we were so grateful to hold the special event with our community in person!
