2018 EOY Celebration Recap
On June 6, 2018, Adopt A Class and over 200 adopters celebrated 15 years of mentoring success during their End of Year Celebration, sponsored by Citibank.
This year Adopt A Class adopted 275 classrooms across 32 schools in Cincinnati/NKU. These companies adopted classes and exposed students to a variety of careers and life skills.
