Class of 2021

Odyssey Graduation Ceremony

Celebrating the Odyssey Class of 2021!

Please join us online for a powerful evening celebrating the graduation of the Odyssey Class of 2021! Join Odyssey co-directors Emily Auerbach and Kevin Mullen, Odyssey’s Theatre Professor Baron Kelly, and Friend of Odyssey Award winner and storyteller Jen Rubin as we celebrate students’ completion of six UW credits in English literature. Despite battling COVID themselves, deaths of loved ones, homelessness, domestic abuse, parenting stress, lost wages, and physical and mental health challenges, our students discussed complex works of literature, philosophy, history, and art and created their own inspiring poetry and prose. As the first graduating class to complete both semesters of Odyssey online, the Class of 2021 needs widespread community support to celebrate their tremendous success.

"This journey of education will help me better myself as a single mother of four African American boys today. It will help me achieve my lifetime goals while also paving a way for my children. It can help me be able to use my powerful voice."

Delisha, Odyssey '21
