Children’s Academy 1st Anniversary Celebration a Great Success!
March 3, 2014
On February 23rd we celebrated the 1st anniversary of the Children’s Academy and Learning Center, our flagship school. And what a great day it was! Over 1500 parents, students, partners, community members and neighbors came out to celebrate the Academy’s first great year. Benaja emceed, with help from Alex, John, Merline, Enel, and others. The WOZO choir performed and partners were honored with framed photos. There was music and dancing, and light refreshments were served to everyone. The Micah scholars were there in numbers to enjoy the celebration and continue their apprenticeship with us. It was truly a wonderful event!
At the center of the program, Patrickson – a local 18-year-old who has enthusiastically received training through our partnership with Extollo International – gave a speech about all he has learned through the Children’s Academy and how much he appreciated the education provided.
