Pass The Cap

55,000 Degrees, Louisville s education movement, is recruiting the 2014 class of college graduates for an important job -- to inspire friends, family and loved ones to earn their college degree.

If you re set to graduate in May, we re asking you to Pass The Cap give your graduation cap on to someone else who you believe can earn a college degree. It might be a sibling, a parent, a friend or a neighbor someone who is on track to earn a diploma or someone who didn t finish the college journey.
