Impact Update: Q2 2022

First Class Graduates

The Career Coaching Program began in August 2018 when Greene College & Career Academy first opened its doors and partnered with the community. It is now four years later and we celebrate the time-honored stage-walk of our first graduating class of dedicated, inspirational students. These students worked hard to achieve their educational and life goals and, in turn, played a significant role in shaping the evolution of our growing program. Parents, relatives, teachers, and career coaches cheered the new graduates onto the next step in their futures.

$120,000 Awarded

On May 17th, the 84 students of the Greene County High School Class of 2022 received a total of $120,000 in financial assistance, awarded by Thillen Education Foundation. Students earned $50,000 in 'Dave Dollar' financial commitments throughout their high school career for academic and professional milestones achieved and $70,000 in "Next Step Funds" through applications for scholarships or career start packages. We are so honored to have presented these students with real funds to continue their education, advance their professional and technical skills, or launch their skilled trade careers.
