Previous winner of Swan House
Saint Xavier held its Winter Commencement on Saturday, Dec. 20, in the Shannon Athletic Center, and ABC7 Chicago was on hand to capture SXU School of Nursing student Lynda Garrison, of Riverdale, receive her B.S.N.
In October 2007, Garrison won the "Swan House," a home in south suburban Riverdale that Chris Swan and ABC7's Jim Rose helped build. The idea behind the program was to build a home for a single mother pursuing her college education.
The journey came full circle as Garrison received her bachelor’s.
