Founder’s Day is Coming Soon!

On Sunday, October 5, we will be celebrating Founder’s Day for Starr Commonwealth! The celebration will take place at our Albion campus, and will continue our Art of Resilience project with performance groups from Detroit.

Mario Bonds

Mario Bonds, singer from The Glee Project.

Our speaker for Founder’s Day will be Mario Bonds, made famous by his performances on The Glee Project. Mario is an amazing singer and speaker, and will be talking with our students and guests about overcoming the hardships in his own life, including going blind at a young age. Mario will also perform a song with the All Starr Choir, which will be quite a treat for everyone!

The day will begin with Chapel service at the Chapel-in-the-Woods, and will include lunch before the program begins at 1:45. This event is FREE, so please feel free to visit our beautiful campus and enjoy an afternoon of amazing performances!
