We have much to celebrate with the school year having come to a close, especially when it comes to our high school seniors who have graduated and will be moving on to a new chapter. We have been highlighting seniors on Twitter through our Senior Spotlight to commemorate the challenges they have overcome and the well deserved rewards of their efforts.

One student especially deserving recognition is Hewan from Wakefield High School! Having immigrated from Ethiopia, Hewan and her family knew little about the college application process. Luckily, with the help of her CIS Site Coordinator, Zoe, Hewan was able to successfully apply to and enroll in Marymount University with a full scholarship!
Her story inspires us to continue our work in schools and renews our dedication to be #allinforkids.
Read more about her story on CIS National’s Blog.
Congrats to our seniors for graduating! See our Senior Spotlights on Twitter @cisofnova.
