As students from all over Philadelphia settle into another year of reading, writing, and arithmetic, one former student has returned to help usher a new generation of students to college and beyond.

Deward Johns | No Tossing of These Graduation CAPs

Deward Johns knew this day was coming.

Speaking on behalf of his 11 fellow departing seniors from the College Access Program (CAP) at the recent graduation ceremony held at Project HOME's Honickman Learning Center Comcast Technology Labs, Johns betrayed a common mix of anxiety and confidence when contemplating the important high school-to-college transition.

 

Deward John has been a participant in Project HOME’s Teen Program at our Honickman Learning Center Comcast Technology Labs. He graduated as Salutatorian of his high school graduating class at Walter D. Palmer Learning Partners Leadership Preparatory Academy and will be attending Albright College in the fall, studying finance. He recently spoke at a July 24 celebration of graduates who were part of our College Access Program.

 

Bernard Conner and John Spanier are both students who attend digital music classes at Project HOME’s Teen Program at the Honickman Learning Center and Comcast Technology Labs.  As part of an ongoing project, students are involved in developing their own record label – Inner Power Records.  They have plans to release their first full-length album in just a few months.  Bernard, who is the front man for the label, spends a majority of his time writing and recording songs with other students in the class.
