Mayor Rahm Emanuel Highlights OMD
OMD Scholar Elizabeth Crisostomo spoke at Mayor Rahm Emanuel's kickoff to his reelection campaign on Saturday, December 6, 2014. Elizabeth was able to attend college thanks to OMD and OMD has served as the Mayor's inspiration for the new Chicago STAR Scholarship—a way for CPS students with a 3.0 GPA or better to attend City Colleges for free.
