This blog will be a college and career ambassador (CCA) shout out! Promise Corps received three new members after the winter break. Everyone was so anxious to see where the new CCAs were going to be placed.
Future was told that we could possibly be receiving a new member, but it was not set in stone. The anxiety left our team once we found out that we were indeed receiving a new member! Our new member’s name is Francis Obeng. We are excited to have him on the team.
Francis work with 10th graders, and he has integrated well into Future’s school community. He is already making great connections with his students. He is even helping out with the JV Boys’ Basketball team! He has attended their games both home and away.
Even though he did not start out in the beginning of the year with the rest of us, one would never know. He has really embodied his role as a college and career ambassador, and the values of Promise Corps is showing through his work ethic thus far.
As a team we are confident that the success Francis has already garnered will continue throughout the year. We will continue to support him with whatever he needs, and we can’t wait to see how much we will grow as a team as the months goes on.
