The Wisdom Project recently held a graduation ceremony for 20 participants in its spring 2014 class. The class participated in a series of interactive discussions with community leaders, explored local industries and organizations through on-site visits, learned about area challenges and opportunities and discovered new ways to engage in the community. They will now put their new knowledge to work by completing individual and group service projects.
