Last month, our Project Excel Program held a grand End of Year ceremony that celebrated the accomplishments of a truly outstanding year. This year’s theme: “No Excuses: We are Unstoppable in Achieving our Goals” inspired students to conquer challenges presented with a commitment to success. We are so very proud of the talented students who accepted the “call to excellence” and equally grateful to the dedicated mentors who contributed to the program’s success. Project Excel is one of those special activities that proves just how much can be accomplished when students, staff, parents, and community members work as a collective team.
