25 Men Graduate at Sing Sing on June 1st

To the sounds of “Pomp and Circumstance,” 24 men marched down the aisle and through the visiting area of Sing Sing Maximum Security Correctional Facility to receive their Associate and Bachelor degrees from Mercy College.  More than 200 of their family and friends were in attendance to celebrate in their accomplishments.  This unique graduation was truly an inspirational evening. 

Commencement speaker, Steve Forbes, told the graduates that “Wealth is not in material goods.  Wealth is in the mind.”  And through education, the minds of these graduates have been transformed forever! 

To experience this emotional and life changing event, go to Graduation Part 1 and Graduation Part 2.
