Labeled as “generation pandemic,” 2021 graduates have experienced something that will fundamentally change them and have a transformative effect on their perceptions and behaviors. Our Ascender students have faced obstacles unknown to other generations with strength and courage and determination. We admire their perseverance and resiliency. We hope they harness the power of these characteristics. We believe in them and want them to know that their Ascender familia will always be here for them. We hope they will join the CTN Alumni Association, so we can continue to share in their successes.
