This weekend we celebrated a major milestone. We had the first FeLT students graduate from their classes, English Language and Literacy Empowerment. In three separate ceremonies, 52 FeLT students graduated. Our students come from 12 countries and are all immigrants, refugees or Dreamers...... or, in our words, heroes!
It was a wonderful celebration, with certificates for the students, amazing backpacks stuffed with gifts, from books to soaps to chocolate to pens... so many presents the students were overwhelmed by the love.
FeLT is so proud of each and every student and we cannot wait until our classes return in fall!
