Bright Future for former 21st Century Student
Ashraf Ahmed emigrated from Bangladesh and found himself at Lincoln High School where he participated in the Training Fund’s 21st Century Healthcare Continuum Program and meet nationally recognized labor expert Dr. Paul Harrington of Drexel University. Impressed with Ahmed’s maturity and ability, Harrington offered him a position at Drexel University’s Center for Labor Markets and policy if Ahmed decided to come to Drexel. That plus a scholarship to study chemical engineering sealed the deal. “I had a job before I came to campus,” Ashraf, currently a sophomore, said with a smile.
