Call it a miracle, The hand of God or Angels it would be at a Job fair that we received a great opportunity. Michael took the initiative to find a job fair at the Mall of America and I had time to take him. We met the folks from Twin Cities Rise and had a hunch that this might be a fit. Michael and I went in for an interview and we met with Tony Blakey and Rolley and based on the interview, they granted Michael a full scholarship into their program. The Scholarship would include all classes and materials and a bus pass to get him to school.
