INM Program Alum Hosts President Obama For Bill Signing

April 21, 2009, was a day to remember for Charles Adams, alumnus of the Institute for Not-for-Profit Management Program and Head of School at The SEED Public Charter School of Washington, D.C. "Not only did the newly elected president visit our school," he said, "but he did so to sign a national service bill. Wow!" President Obama was joined at The SEED School by First Lady Michelle Obama, former President Bill Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden, Senator Ted Kennedy, and dozens of other dignitaries to sign into law the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act. The Act expands national community service programs and improves opportunities for young people in low income, high-need communities like those SEED serves to engage in service to improve their neighborhoods.
