Banneker Franklin Foundation – Senior’s Who Graduate Program

In June 2010 the Banneker Franklin Foundation was proud to launch the national “Seniors Who Graduate” Program. through this program the Banneker Franklin Foundation will work with celebrities, athletes, entertainers, major corporations and their CEO’s to gift graduation jewelry to seniors who graduate. The concept calls for Freshman classes to be aligned with celebrity endorsers and sponsors who will provide occasional motivational messages to the students while following their progress through 4 years of High School until graduation when students will receive their gifts.

Jewelry will be given to students in areas where the dropout rates are most prevalent with the program eventually expanding across the country. Celebrity endorsers will work with his or her high school and a corporate sponsor to present that years graduating class with a unique set of Banneker Franklin Foundation graduation jewelry designed to commemorate the occasion.
