FOX Chicago News’ Robin Robinson’s dream of molding little girls into future leaders came to fruition June 4 when 65 members of the Sisters Peak youth development program attended the program’s first graduation ceremony held at Chicago State University’s library sunroom.
Founders Robinson and Tisha Lewis, a FOX reporter, adopted Daniel S. Wentworth Elementary School about a year ago to make a positive difference in the lives of girls by exposing them to opportunities, experiences and people that would encourage them to reach their highest potential.
Participants met doctors, lawyers, teachers and activists who shared insights on how the world works and the girls’ place in that world, said Wentworth Principal Dina Everage.
The girls now “know that these are opportunities that they have right in front of them, and it’s all based on choices that they make,” Everage said.
