Mary King's Mission

 

continued

Last fall's event was a modest affair: a dozen guys, one in a suit, the rest in jeans and T-shirts, sheepishly crossing a stage to receive a diploma that recognizes them for fulfilling their MPRI contracts, along with a gift bag. A few paused to shyly thank their families and the MPRI staff.

Some of these men were receiving their first diplomas ever. "You have succeeded where others have failed," Mary King told them. "I believe in you."
