We extend our happiest and most heartfelt congratulations to the Class of 2020! You’ve earned a place in the record books! You have completed your studies and earned your diplomas against the backdrop of a health crisis that has kept us indoors, online, and at safe distances from our family, friends, teachers, coaches, and colleagues. You have graduated into a new normal that is yet to be defined, but which holds great opportunities for those with open hearts and willing spirits. You are among the young leaders and visionaries who will set the course and shine the light on new and innovative ways to learn, engage, connect, and succeed. Congratulations Class of 2020!


We are pleased to welcome Ms. Gina Choe to the Board of Directors of Yours Humanly.
Gina Choe is Northern California Client Operations Manager for City National Bank, responsible for leading and managing the client and operational service teams for its commercial banking regional offices.
Gina’s personal stories have inspired her to engage with Yours Humanly and to contribute in any way she can to further its mission to “empower underprivileged children in underserved communities around the world by providing access to educational programs and resources.”


Thank you, Teachers, everywhere, for doing so much for your students—the children and young people who mean so much to us! Every day you are there, helping your students continue their studies and helping them to learn in new and virtual ways—helping them to respond to social distancing and shelter in place with positivity and good spirit.
With great respect and gratitude, we thank you for ensuring that learning continues and that our children continue to benefit from your experience, talents, and creativity. Your lives are full with your own families and children and parents, and yet you make time in your schedule to help our children continue to receive the education they deserve and maintain the connections that matter so much to them.
Thank you, Teachers, for helping our children navigate this crisis and showing them that together, we will get through it. You are our heroes.
