Every now and then I get these jobs that make my soul smile, last night was one of them. At the First annual Urban League of New Orleans “College Track” graduation, I was able to see the joy of 37, sharp as all hell, students and their families receive their diplomas and 100% 4 year college scholarships. President Clinton was the Keynote speaker among others including Mayor Landrieu. The ceremony was followed by a nice dinner and then these deserving students were treated to a Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue show....... “College Track is the catalyst for change for under-resourced high school students who are motivated to earn a college degree. Since its inception, College Track has grown each year, strengthening its services and expanding its program to support more and more students.” You can learn more about and support “College Track” at this link http://www.collegetrack.org/main/content/view/13/129/
