On October 8, 2019, Community Partnership School honored Charisse Lillie at their annual Leadership Luncheon. Charisse is a trailblazer for women in Philadelphia. After a distinguished legal career, she ultimately served as Executive Vice President of the Comcast Foundation. Guests were welcomed by Head of School Eric Jones who introduced two CPS graduates who are now seniors at Girard College and Springside Chestnut Hill who spoke of the positive impact the CPS school had on their lives. Charisse Lille accepted her honor and spoke of the importance of education for a brighter future, and how important giving back to the next generation by being a positive role model and mentoring.
