Detoured but not denied

Community College of Philadelphia recently had a class speaker you all should know about – her name is Amber Young. Quiet and well-thought out, the 21 year old became an emergent leader, despite her past troubles at a four-year institution she previously attended. CCP’s smaller environment allowed the now graduate to embrace adulthood at her own pace and to emerge as an award-winning luminary.

“To see how far she has come, this shy person … to see how much she has accomplished, I can only say thank you, Lord,” said Danyelle Watson Young, an administrator at CCP and Amber’s mother.
