On April 25, we gathered more than 2,500 high school seniors at Old Dominion University’s Ted Constant Center for Access College Commitment Day to celebrate their commitment to higher education. The students, who came from Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Portsmouth, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Suffolk and Northampton County, have all been helped by Access. Each one has been accepted to at least one college or university and will be headed there in the Fall!
