An uplifting evening . . .

This evening was the third night in a row and tomorrow brings another evening event.  At times during weeks like this it is difficult to maintain energy and focus.  Tonight, however, it was not difficult. I had a smile on my face the whole time as I watched our transition students be recognized during the second annual End of School Celebration.

Our transition program supports our special needs students through age 21.  Tonight, there were eight students being recognized for their individual achievements and for meeting the Certificate of Academic Achievement standards.  Our Transition Program staff are doing a wonderful job growing this program and preparing these young men and women for employment opportunities.

The following businesses provided job training for transition students this year.  Without their support we would not be able to meet the job skill needs for these young people.  Many thanks for their support.
