BALTIMORE — Baltimore Mayor Jack Young welcomed a group of more than 400 Baltimore City high school graduates for the Mayor's Scholars Program.
Mayor Young kicked off the second year of the program at Baltimore City Community College.
The Mayor's Scholars Program is a tuition-free scholarship allowing students to earn their associate's degrees or complete a workforce development programs.
"Good luck on this next chapter of your lives. I also want to let you that you can do anything that you put your mind to. Never let anybody tell you what you can't do. Can't should never be in your vocabulary, because you can do anything that you want to do," said Mayor Young. "And please don't let your surroundings dictate your outcome. You dictate your own outcome, and I see success in each and every last one of you."
Last year, the program was launched with a class of more than 300 graduates.
