Each spring, CIS of Chicago honors students who have overcome challenges and persevered to meet their goals with our annual Tenacity Awards! And this year, our Student Supports Managers are recognizing the winners with virtual celebrations. The team mailed each winner a certificate of achievement, gift card, and “tenacious” T-shirt.
Bernie Tafoya from WBBM Newsradio interviewed Field Supervisor Paul Fagen and one of the honorees, Victorious Comehn, about what it means to win this award. “I think it was an amazing step in my life ‘cause I wasn’t expecting it,” Victorious said. “I was surprised.”
