We were invited to ring the New York Stock Exchange’s morning bell on Friday, February 26, 2016, to commemorate our 24th anniversary and upcoming expansion of our program sites into Brooklyn and Queens. Our executive director, Michael Lee, and Apex mentee and current high school senior, Ken Bamba, rang the bell from the podium. Ken will also be our 2016 gala student speaker. Thank you to the NYSE for such a special and memorable experience! Our flag flew from the building for the day, and we also got special commemorative medals with our name engraved for the bell ceremony. See below for a sneak peek of photos from the ceremony, and stay tuned for more!
