On January 3, Chicago Scholars hosted their Winter Exploration Event titled “Careers that Make an Impact.” Mike Folkening participated as one of three panelists. Civiltech intern and Chicago Scholars alum Cyan Baker also participated in the breakout group sessions. The event focused on helping first-generation, diverse, talented high school seniors and college underclassmen Scholars learn about new careers, and also learn about how we are all making an impact within the City of Chicago.
