This was an exciting week for Chicago Scholars and President and CEO Dominique Jordan Turner as she attended the first Obama Fellow Retreat. Yesterday, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama welcomed the fellows as they began this collaborative journey.
Check out CBS Chicago’s coverage of the day, including an interview with Dominique!
Last month, Dominique was announced as one of twenty leaders from around the globe chosen to be part of this two-year program meant to scale the impact of their work. This opportunity means that more people than ever will begin to learn about the transformational work happening at Chicago Scholars and our mission to develop the next generation of Chicago leaders.
This happens as we are set to welcome our new class of 715 Scholars, our largest class yet. Your support makes it possible for us to continue to offer our program to even more talented Chicago Scholars.
