We have some YVScholars who have graduated this season! Congrats to Lisheena, who graduated from Christian Brother University in Memphis, TN with a bachelor's degree in psychology.
Through an application process, we select a group of young people participating in our YVLifeSet program to become YVScholars. These young adults from across the country receive extra support from us to go to college and make a successful transition to adulthood.
We're grateful for the time we spent working with Director Ed Lake and his team to serve the children and families of Oklahoma. Thank you Director Lake for your service and leadership. We look forward to working with Director Justin Brown and continuing our partnership with DHS to help children and families live successfully!
