She is now the head of graphic design, email marketing, and head photographer at a local ski company. Never would Shelby think she’d be in zero student debt with a great job. She would also like to say that Mrs. Michelle Saffran was her photography teacher and a great kick-of her passions. Michelle helped Shelby discover a part of herself she didn’t even know about, and Shelby’s passions led her to a great job.

Clyde changed law firms last year. He now works at McAlpin Conroy PA, a small maritime law firm in Miami, Florida.

Cedric spent a decade after school working with Comcast in their tech, retention, and escalation queues, and then got into home and auto insurance. Last year, he was able to start his own firm offering free access to creating and maintaining financial plans. Now Cedric is building up his company by helping democratize access to the tools of the financial industry! Building something on his own as a black man in America in 2022 helps to reassure him that there are ways that people of conscience and dedication can aspire to great things, even with the barriers to success that many people face. It is Cedric’s job to fortify those aspirations with planning to inspire actions and success, and he is humbled that his future is tied to the success of the community that supported Cedric’s audacity to reach higher.
