Whatever it takes…to Graduate!

May 28, 2021

BGCAA has the privilege to be present for the many milestones of our Club youth. One of these remarkable milestones is seeing our Club teens graduate high school and embark on their Great Futures as Club Alumni. On May 27th, BGCAA Club staff organized a Senior Celebration at Home Club for the Class of 2021. The graduates were recognized by their Club Directors, enjoyed a family dinner, and took graduation photos with friends and family. The commencement speech was delivered by Don Hobson, Chief Information Officer of Visa, a Club Kid himself who shared his story and advice to the graduates and their proud families.

“Take any opportunities that come your way, it might be scary at first, but trust me, taking chances and opportunities is what brought me to be here speaking to you all today” – Don Hobson, CIO Visa

Senior Graduates took home a certificate of completion and will receive a laptop generously donated through a partnership with HP and AMD. Congratulations to our graduating Class of 2021. We are incredibly proud of your accomplishments, and we can’t wait to see what your Great Futures hold!
