WKYC has been privileged to work with an amazing organization of College Now of Greater Cleveland. We welcomed Lee Friendman , the Chief Executive Officer and Bob Durham, the Senior Director of Scholarships and Financial Aid, to the show!
Below are questions Michael and Hollie had for Lee and Bob:
What have been some of the major highlights of the Say Yes partnership thus far for College Now?
Bob, the College Now Mentoring Program is one aspect of the Say Yes Cleveland work that sets it apart from other chapters - why is the mentoring aspect so important?
When will students learn about and meet their mentors for the first time?
Bob, In March, WKYC worked with College Now of Greater Cleveland and CMSD to host a Mentor Monday day of coverage related to the College Now Mentoring Program. What was the impact of that coverage and CMSD’s partnership in particular?
What is on the horizon for College Now of Greater Cleveland?
Every year WKYC gives out grant checks to local nonprofits, provided by our parent company, TEGNA. We are pleased to let you know that the TEGNA Foundation has doubled the amount of your grant award.
