Cap and Gown



We are so grateful to everyone who was able to join us on June 7th at Cap & Gown to celebrate our 2016 graduating high school class and the mentors who have guided them on their way. You are truly helping us form their Network of Success. As you heard from CPE senior Myiah Smith:


“CPE’s contributions to my high school education are immeasurable. Knowing I will continue to have access to opportunities and CPE’s network through college, I feel like I’ve won a secret lottery!”


Our fundraising at the event was a huge success and exceeded our modest $10,000 target, and we are very grateful to everyone who made a donation. 


If you were unable to attend or did not have the opportunity to donate at the event, or know someone who could not attend, there is still time to contribute to our students’ success by donating here.

Thank you again for helping to show our students that they indeed have a large and supportive Network of Success.
