guardian scholars foster awareness

In May 2022, the Guardian Scholars Program led the 2nd Annual Walking Our Walk event, a walk of solidarity to spread foster care awareness around campus. May was Foster Care Awareness Month and the program hosted “Virtual Week of Action” the following week. Walking around campus, you might have spotted the various blue pinwheels and lawn signs around campus. The lawn signs that depicted various known celebrities that were once part of the foster care system were designed to encourage current foster youth.
