The students at Ida B. Wells are a unique and resilient population. They come from many obstacles in life that have set them back such as; growing up in the foster system, living in poverty and violence plagued neighborhoods, having incarcerated parents, being young parents, and losing friends and family to gang violence. Many of these obstacles made a majority of my students think that they would never recieve their high school diploma, but every year I get to see that look on their faces when they were proved wrong and walk across that stage, to see them finally BELIEVE in themselves. This is the greatest gift I could receive in the work that I do. 

In honor of these students, I would like to treat them to a special lunch to celebrate.  Besides the graduation ceremony itself, this is the only opportunity for the graduates to celebrate together.  I am asking for your help to in the process of helping to make this happen. No donation is too small. This lunch always turns out to be a success and the graduating Seniors feel so honored. With your help I know our goal of making this happen will be reached.
