On Sunday, May 21, we celebrated our graduation Launch Class of 2023.
We spent the evening with our 9 graduates, our largest class to date, recognizing their accomplishments and celebrating such a big milestone of their life.
This group of students has been with us for the last 10 years; they entered into our programming as 3rd graders, continued on into RISE and are now graduating as 12th graders from Launch.
Movement and Dance Therapist, Alyssa Bigbee, addressed our students – encouraging them to go after what they are most passionate about. She used her personal career story to motivate our students to lean on their village, and not to sacrifice what they’re passionate about just for a career.
Our evening was concluded with comforting words offered by the parents and students themselves, and closing remarks given by Board President and Founder, Andy Hicks.
Congratulations to the Class of 2023. We are rooting for you and cannot wait to see what you and where you go.
