Congratulations to the Class of 2018!
On Friday, June 1st, ASK hosted its 20th Annual Graduation Celebration to recognize graduating high school patients and survivors who have achieved academic success while persevering through treatments for cancer and blood disorders.
This celebration was organized by Alma Morgan, ASK’s educational consultant. When speaking with our graduates this year, Alma was cited as a constant factor that helped them achieve everything up to this point in life. She has served at VCU hospital for 30 years and has organized this graduation celebration for over 20 years.
Travis Compher, one of our 2018 graduates who will likely be attending trade school in the future, described Alma as someone that was always there for him, keeping him straight and focused. Another 2018 graduate, JayQuan McNair will head straight into the workforce after graduation. He explained that Alma is always around to help people.
Congratulations to our 31 graduates from around Central Virginia! You did it!
