Dreams Come True for "First Five"

May 17, 2014

It was an emotional day last month as five young women received their diplomas from Bridgewater State University (BSU) as part of the first graduating class from The Home’s Academic Support for College and Life (ASCL) program. This unique program supports young people as they successfully transition from state systems of care into higher education. The event proved memorable in the lives of the students and all who attended.

“The graduation of ASCL’s ‘First Five’ is a testament to the strength of these young adults, and their commitment to achieve success in higher education. It is also a testament to the strength of the partnership between ASCL and BSU to support these young adults in achieving their goals,” said Carl Morton, Director of The Home’s Transitional Age Youth Programs. “At ASCL we are thankful to have BSU as our partner, and we look forward to celebrating more ASCL/BSU graduates in the years to come.”
