Argh!Congrats to the 30 21st Century Charter School at Gary students who walked in the graduation ceremony, including seven seniors who earned associate degrees, five sophomores who also earned associate degrees, six seniors who earned the Indiana College Core, and all our career certification earners.Since I was not there, I'm relying on friends to send me pictures. Here is a picture of Jalayah and Jaden Hadley with Niaulani Barksdale and Kayonna Montgomery. This might be a first for 21C in that we have siblings earning an associate degree at the same time. And Jalayah did it as a sophomore in high school. Wow!Please send me pics so I can post. ... See MoreSee Less
