Incoming Class Member Embarks on a Homelessness Awareness Journey

Derek Pratt (Class of 2019) is embarking on a journey next month to create awareness around issues related to Homelessness, more specifically it’s negative affect on children’s lives. He is attending the National Alliance to End Homelessness Conference in Washington DC the week of July 23, 2018. He is honored to have received a full scholarship to attend, however he decided to not utilize the travel portion of the scholarship, as he intends on walking from Cleveland, OH to Washington DC, to attend.

He is doing this to raise awareness and funding, which is described in more detail on the web page he created at
