A celebration hard work and resilience
The Mesa County Child Welfare Department is hosting the 2nd Annual Western Slope Celebration of Excellence.
This is a celebration of youth in foster care, DYC, Probation and School District 51 as they graduate. Some youth have been homeless or have been involved in the legal system. During the month of May, we recognize and celebrate the successes of these young people as they are graduating high school or receiving their GED.
The celebration is scheduled for Tuesday May 23, 2017 at the Mesa County Workforce Center from 4:00-6:00pm.
"These young people have made tremendous strides to get this point in their lives. It is time to recognize their hard work and resilience. We are proud to honor them as they move into adulthood," said Kari Daggett, Child Welfare Permanency Manager, at the Mesa County Department of Human Services.
The keynote speaker will be R-5 Educator, Al Kreinberg. Kreinberg has over 25 years of experience working and inspiring youth.
