ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--C5 Georgia Class of 2011 alumnus Jacky Kwong continues to make a difference in the world, working with his employer ADP to turn their Corporate Social Responsibility focus toward C5 Georgia.
Jacky conceived of and executed a fundraising event with the intent to offer a scholarship to a graduating C5 Georgia student. Shortly after the event, Jacky joined ADP, where he met Christy Brown, Vice President of Global Client Engagement, another C5 Georgia advocate. For the past three years, including this year, Christy has chaired or co-chaired C5 Georgia’s graduation celebration, An Evening with Graduates.
Together, Christy and ADP have tripled the amount of Jacky’s gift, by Christy making a personal gift matching the amount Jacky raised, and then taking advantage of ADP’s matching gift program.
On May 3, 2016, Jacky will present his scholarship at An Evening with Graduates, presented by WestRock. Jacky’s efforts are a shining example of how C5 Georgia students lead their communities with great character, compassion and commitment. This year, as we gather to honor our graduating class, celebrate their achievements, and hear their dreams for the future, we will be proud to share the podium with Jacky as he demonstrates that the impact of C5 Georgia does not end at graduation.
