Celebrating Wily Graduates

“You are exceptional folk— not in the fake oh they’re so strong, put them on a poster kind of way— but in a sincere, I see you, you see me kind of way. I can’t wait to see all the things you do and more importantly, all the joy out there for you to experience.”

Wily Scholars graduated from:

In May, we celebrated the graduation of 13 exceptional Wily Scholars from six colleges. On April 5th, Wily graduates joined their dedicated Coaches for a heartfelt graduation dinner ceremony to celebrate the journey that has led them to complete their degrees.

We extend our gratitude to speakers Charles Lerner, Child Welfare Leader and Nonprofit Executive, and Regina (she/her), a proud Wily alum from the class of ’22, for imparting their insightful messages to Wily Scholars as they prepare to embark on their next chapter. A special thank you to our group of graduation gift givers who prepared beautiful gifts and to Give A Cake Bakery for making a wonderful Wily cake for the celebration.

Wily Coaches continue to work with Scholars for three months after graduation to support them in transitioning to the next phase of their journey. At the end of the three months, this year’s Wily alums will receive “Next Chapter” gift bags generously donated by Audax Group and a graduation card with messages from the Wily Pack. Please join us in congratulating the outstanding accomplishments of Wily graduates and we will add your message to the card!

Congratulations to these 13 accomplished Wily Scholars! Wishing you all the success and fulfillment in your future endeavors!
