Madden, Janise BA spotlight blog

We are pleased to introduce the graduating class of the YMCA of Central KY Black Achievers 2023-24 program year. These seniors have met the program attendance and participation requirements to be eligible for our post-secondary senior cash awards. The requirement for senior awards culminates with a capstone project. This includes writing a resume, letters of recommendations, participating in mock job interviews as well as submitting an essay about how they would implement changes to benefit the community in which we live. The Achievers complete all of this while balancing extracurricular activities, jobs, and academics. We are extremely proud of the dedication and commitment the Achievers have demonstrated and look forward to the bright futures that await.
