Last Saturday, over 35 alumni gathered downtown to reconnect with familiar faces, network, share their achievements, and focus on college and career readiness. Alumni, staff, and Chicago professionals honored Mr. George W. Mead, a long-standing donor, who continues to provide Alain Locke alumni with scholarships to pursue post-secondary education. We are so grateful for his continued dedication, which has allowed our students to compete globally as they attend prestigious colleges and universities across the country. While many have plans to attend graduate school, others have become successful entrepreneurs in various fields. As they have all pursued different career paths, the alumni were able to reminisce and take pride in where it all started, at Alain Locke Charter School.
