Charles McSweeney tipped me off to this article in the Windy City Times regarding a UCAN (Uhlich Children’s Advantage Network’s) fundraiser on November 3. The highlight of the evening, according to the author, was a speech by an HWC alum. “The UCAN LGBT Host Home graduate spent 15 months in his host home while he finished his associate’s degree at Harold Washington College, earning top grades.”
He is now majoring in computer engineering at IIT. Charles tells me the young man was also a Phi Theta Kappan. Thanks for sharing, Charles.
