On October 5 we celebrated all of our graduates over the 2016-17 school year with food, games, music, and of course, cake. We can’t wait to see who we’ll be celebrating next year! Check out the photo album on Facebook.
The 4th Annual Back-to-School Kickoff event was held at Metropolitan Community College (MCC) South on Thursday, Sept 14, 2017. This year’s theme was “Attend, Achieve, Graduate!” Sponsors of this family event were the D2 Center, the Latino Center of the Midlands, the GOALS Center, and MCC. Over one hundred students and family members attended along with many more community agency representatives, volunteers, and staff. Activities included breakout sessions, a motivational speaker, dinner, and a raffle for prizes. Thanks to organizers and attendees for getting the school year off to a great start!
Alejandra needed one last elective credit in order to earn her diploma this past summer, so she came to the D2 Center and took the class “Better Family Health” with teachers Clem Bell and Dianne Kielniarz. She earned her final credit and we celebrated her on July 17, 2017, at the D2 Center Board meeting and with classmates. Pictured with Alejandra are Board members Caroline Hinrichs, Lauren Micek, Jerry Bexten, and Karina Mejia Garcia (l. to r.).
