We were honored recently to see our Project Excel students and mentors recognized at a wonderful year-end dinner ceremony.  Our students and staff enjoyed a year characterized by noteworthy accomplishments and steady progress towards worthy personal and collective goals. This year's theme, "Maintaining a Mindset for Success," was on full display as the coordinators, interns, and students presented their recaps of this year's program.  The keynote speaker, Elizabeth Tirado, shared her extraordinary personal story of commitment and success after remarks by special guest, Councilwoman Tracey Edwards. We congratulate all of our Project Excel participants, as well as the proud parents who joined for this celebratory evening.  Bravo to Project Excel Coordinator David Perkins and Roberto Torres, Jennifer DeNoble, Shaka Williams, Maria Colon, and Ian Denson who coordinate the program in our buildings. A special thanks is extended to Solange Rich, who has worked diligently to ensure Project Excel continues to serve children and families with excellence.
