Congratulations class of 2016!
Congratulations to all of our PSP graduates! You did it!
Our 42 seniors are on their way to college and we couldn’t be more proud of their accomplishments over their six years as scholars. Though they are embarking on a new and exciting chapter in their lives with many challenges ahead, we know that all of our PSP graduates will encounter great success in college and beyond.
As we celebrated together both in Ukiah and in Los Angeles, we were reminded that Partnership Scholars is a very special experience and has been there every step of the way towards college. Six years ago, our graduates began a journey with their mentors that has shaped the way they see their future. Now, as our scholars, mentors and their families celebrate together, we are reminded of what we have all accomplished and what we look forward to achieving. This is not the end of the journey, but merely a stepping stone to the next big chapter. We know that all of our graduates are prepared for the road ahead and will continue to reach for the stars.
At our Southern California graduation ceremony on Saturday, June 11, two outstanding PSP supporters were recognized for their unwavering support. Long time El Monte mentor, Jeff Morris, was awarded this year’s Cultural and Academic Partner (CAP) Award for his incredible dedication to the many scholars he has worked with and continues to provide support to. Dana Oder was honored with this year’s Langer Award for her tireless financial efforts, a long-time donor, volunteer and cheerleader for Partnership Scholars. We are all truly grateful for the ongoing dedication both Jeff and Dana have shown to PSP.
A big thank goes out to all of our supportive volunteers and donors who make it possible for us to make dreams come true. Together, we are creating worldly, caring and compassionate leaders for our communities.
