Today's guest speaker, Kimberly Stark, focused on the importance of individual stories, and how overcoming obstacles and showing a resilient spirit is a positive character trait that can inspire others to achieve their goals too. Graduates spoke and thanked teachers, family, and friends for their support. The remarks again showed how the community of the South Area Adult Education Center, under the leadership of Principal Rebecca Camp, provides a positive and supportive environment for students who have chosen an alternate educational path to achieve their high school diploma or GED.
A beautiful afternoon for a backyard concert to benefit Shining Through Shadows, Inc. The Spring fundraising event raised $2,031 toward our 2016 goal of $5,000.
