33rd Annual Student Achievement Recognition Ceremony-June 2, 2016

June 22nd, 2016 No comments

Tonight we all come together under the tents to celebrate the accomplishments achieved by many and inspired by educators,
philanthropists, faculty, staff, board members, businesses, students, alumni, family, friends and the community at large.
Our families, the community and the economy improves every time one of our scholarship recipients earns a college degree.
Collectively, we contribute to reducing crime, poverty and health care costs. Children who witness their parents or guardians
earn a college degree are more often inspired to earn a degree themselves.
Tonight we celebrate inspiring each other to achieve self-sufficiency as we continue to empower the next generation to use education to change the world.
All of the gifts tonight; scholarships, awards, books and certificates acknowledge the hard work of our students who have overcome obstacles, made sacrifices and persevered through it all.
