First Generation College Student Week at CW-Mohammed Konneh

First Generation College Student Week at CW-Mohammed Konneh

It’s First Generation Week and we are glad to present the first round of students who shared their stories with us. A first-generation college graduate refers to a person who has completed at least a bachelor's degree but does not have a parent who has completed at least a bachelor's degree. The purpose of #FirstGenerationWeek is to celebrate those students and their families for this big milestone of having a first college graduate in the family.

CW Students Raise Funds for Breast Cancer

This past year has posed a challenge to everyone all over the world.  Breast Cancer Awareness and Prevention is no different.  There were setbacks with screenings and early detection, and fundraising was limited due to unprecedented times.
